Football / Soccer Birthday Cake

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Madeira Sponge for the football, Chocolate cake for the base, Satin Ice Fondant, colors etc. 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? Feel free to ask any questions in the comment box. Also check out the online tutorials for making these - some on Youtube.

What you will need

  • Madeira Sponge for the football
  • Chocolate cake for the base
  • Satin Ice Fondant
  • colors etc.

CyberKat77 asked:
very pretty!! do you have a special ball pan? any recommendations on buying one? thank you!!! :)
CakeBakerMoney answered:
Yes. I think Wilton make one. I bought mine on eBay. Was just a cheapie one as I didn't know whether or not I wanted to make one again. As it turns out the pan was great and I didn't need to pay the Wilton tax ;o)
