I have been asked to make a boy shower cake with a soccer/sports theme in 7 days for about 20 people. I am not sure I can get the 3D ball pan soon enough and my bowls I usually bake with are more doll dress shaped. I am not very confident in my ability to carve.
I have a 6", 8", 12" round, 8" square and 1/2 sheet pans. I have seen the cakes with the top decorated like a soccer ball but I can't vision how I would make that look babyshower-ish.
I am pretty daring and will to try new things however, the last cake for this friend was a disaster so I feel pressured to to an extra good, extra special job this time.
Any advice, thoughts, ideas would be greatly appreciated.
BTW - in case it is not obvious I am new to this and LOVE all the beautiful cakes on here.
