fondant baseball, volleyball, & football

As promised, here is Part 2 of the fondant sports ball series.  You can check out Part 1 HERE. Today, I will show you how to make a baseball, volleyball and football.

And just like before, you can use these as cupcake toppers or cookie toppers.

To make them you will need the following supplies:

Brown fondant
White fondant
Light blue fondant
Rolling pin
Black edible marker
Red edible marker
Circle cutter

We’ll make the baseball first…

Step 1: Start off by rolling out white fondant.

Step 2:  Use the circle cutter to cut out a circular piece.

Step 3: Now, draw out the details with a red edible marker. Take your time and don’t rush. You can’t erase anything and if you make a mistake, you have to start over again.

Let’s make a volley ball now…

Step 1: Start off by rolling out blue fondant.

Step 2: Use the circle cutter to cut out a circular piece.

Step 3: Draw out the details with a black edible marker.

And finally, let’s make a football…

Step 1: Start off by rolling out brown fondant.

Step 2: Use a circle cutter to cut out a circular shape.

Step 3: Use the same cutter to cut out a small portion on the top until you are left with this “leaf” shape.

Step 4: Draw out the details with a black edible marker.

And you are done! You can use these pieces immediately OR let them dry overnight and then use them.  Please note that if you are sticking the pieces onto your cookies, you can use royal icing or corn syrup to stick them securely in place.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.

Happy caking everyone!
