Wonderful job on wrapping the ball in fondant. I like the peanut butter cup for the top of the ornament.

Excellent job!!!

I'd love to know too how difficult it is to cover a ball with fondant.

What kind of fondant did you use?

Thanks!
Emily

That looks great! I tell you, with some many awesome ideas, it is hard to pare it down for what I actually want to make. Too bad our Christmas meal can't be just desserts!

Sorry - I have not been on here for a very long time. There's no trick here. I use Duff fondant (40% off at Michael's) which is the same as fondarific fondant. I bake the cake in the sports ball pan, shave a small bit off one of the halves so it will sit flat, fill the cake, and put the halves together. I roll out the fondant about 1/4" thick and just slowly smooth it over the ball, using a pizza cutter to gradually trim off the excess fondant at the bottom and then I use my clean icing spatula tip to gently tuck the fondant edges up under the cake to hide them. I use a wrapped peanut butter or caramel chocolate cup for the hook holder, and just use a hardware store mug hook in that. I am careful to tell the recipients NOT to eat the chocolate since it's had a metal hook screwed into it. I also have a few snowflake cutters that I use to make the snowflakes you see around the sides. Nothing tricky ...
