I have a cake to make for next Sat and it's a golf ball. I read on here that to get the dimples on the cake you use a melon ball tool then cover it with fondant or butter cream. My question is do you ever cut the ball in half and use any kind of filling? Will the ball still keep it's shape or is it best not to?

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

Are you using the ball pan from Wilton? The cake bakes in halves. Then icing in the middle. Easy to make!

I iced the outside with bc, then smoothed. After crusting, I used a small knob to make the indentions. Then I set the ball on a ring of fondant so it would stay in place. Covered the ring with grass. icon_biggrin.gif

The wilton celebrate with fondant book has a golf ball cake on a tee. It's a 10x2in round pan. the dimples, imprints are made with a medium ball tool from the confectionery set. it looks very cute and simple to make. good luck. icon_smile.gif
