One of my regular customer's husband turns 40 and loves to bowl. Her request: a black bowling ball cake. And here's what I came up with.
I've not made a cake ball of this size yet nor have a covered one. It's not that big - 8 inch to be exact- but it is quite tricky to cover with fondant and more importantly, to keep it upright without having a flat bottom. The solution: styrofoam! And boy, was it great. But there still IS cake in there. 2/3 of it that is.
The little pins (yes, they're tiny)...I decided on them 20 minutes before pick up and I'm glad I made them. A friend of mine who saw the photo on facebook said she definitely will win and knock those pins out! Ha!
Okay, on to another cake story...
