I would like to make a soccer ball cake for my father-in-law's birthday.  I presume I need to use two half dome tins and then place together? How do I make sure it doesn't roll off the cake board?  How hard is it to make a cake in a half dome?

I have the ball pan, but only used one for a dome before. Anyway, it has instructions inside about how to frost to resemble a soccer ball. I guess I never thought about the cake board, but I think it would be cute to use a grass frosting tip and pipe grass all around the base of it.

I took a masonite board and nailed three nails near the center of the board.  I covered the nails with melted chocolate.  While I have done all cake, I prefer to use RKT in the bottom half and then cake on top.  Less worry about moving/rolling.

Once you have baked up the 2 half domes, put them together w/a stiff filling and cut a flat area on one, then turn it over so the ball sits on the flat spot.  640 also has a good idea, maybe use both.... I also like her suggestion of using RKT for 1/2 of it.  Much safer, if the creation has to be transported very far.
