Basketball Cake

This cake was made for my son in-law for his 30th Birthday

I made a carrot cake and baked it in this glass bowl. This is the same bowl I used for my pig cake.

 I put a crumb coat on the cake and smoothed it out with a paper towel.

I made a basic MMF recipe HERE and colored it orange. Roll the fondant out so that it is smooth and about 1/4 in thick

Lay it out over the cake and smooth it out.

 I use a pizza cutter to cut around the cake

I used a fondant tool to make the lines in the fondant to resemble a basketball.

 With gel food coloring, I colored in the lines.

 Wish I was 30 again. :)
