Type of item: Food
Madeira Sponge for the football, Chocolate cake for the base, Satin Ice Fondant, colors etc.
What was your inspiration?
My son's joint birthday party. Wanted to have a go at making a ball cake.
What are you most proud of?
That the ball came out so well and.... dare I say it... it was really easy to make and decorate! Next time round I would buy the Kit Box cutters for the hexagons and pentagons just to make it quicker. Only thing is that it's Madeira sponge and is pretty tough. But then the base is chocolate cake so we will cut and serve that.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
