3D Soccer Ball Cake:
|Here are my 2 halves filled and ready for a coat of buttercream. Coat the cake with a layer of butter cream and then place cake in the icebox to chill a little. While your cake is chilling start your cake board.|
|This what your cake board should look like after adding the desired grass effect.|
|I airbrushed mine a little with a darker green but you don't have to.|
|Now place your chilled soccer ball into the dwelling on top of the cake board. This will keep your ball from moving.|
Moving on to decorating the soccer ball.
|I didnt want to make a template and hand cut all the hexagons & pentagons so I had http://www.cohodesignsllc.com/ design custom cutters for me. We calculated the exact size I needed for this specific sphere. These cutters were a huge time saver.|
|Here is another look at the pattern.|
|It's like a puzzle. Just keep adding the black with white around the whole ball. Now use a moist cloth and lightly dust off any powdered sugar on the surface of your cake.|
|The name plate on the cake board was cut with a pizza cutter. I used alphabet stamps to imprint the name then brushed on a little green edible paint over each letter.|
There you go! Enjoy!
