How to Make a Fondant Soccer Ball Cake Topper

I made a soccer themed cake for my friend’s son Adrian in April. Here is how I created the soccer ball cake topper. All the measurements and cutting were done by hand so were likely to prone to human errors. The shapes should be adjusted slightly and  accordingly during the construction. Simply cover up the not-so-great side by using it as the bottom.

EC四月時為朋友的兒子Adrian做了以足球為主題的翻糖蛋糕,以下是足球蛋糕裝飾做法,量度及切割都是人手做的,難免會有誤差,因此有需要時可將圖案大小稍作調整,只要將黏得不好或不美的部份當作裝飾底部便可。

Measure the circumference of the sphere with a string. Divide this number by 15. This will be the side of your pentagon and hexagon. My sphere has a circumference of 20 cm. So my shapes will have a side of 1.3 cm. Draw pentagon and hexagon with this width on a piece of cardstock paper. A pentagon has angles of 108° whereas a hexagon has angles of 120°. I just drew them with a ruler and a protractor. Cut shapes out with scissors to create your templates.
用繩子量度圓球的圓周,將數字除15,這便是五邊和六邊形圖案的邊長,EC的圓球圓周約長20厘米,因此圖案長度約1.3厘米,在咭紙上依數字畫上五邊和六邊形紙樣(五邊形內角是108°,六邊形內角則是120°,EC用間尺及量角器畫紙樣),用剪刀剪出紙樣。

Knead black and white fondant until pliable. Roll out fondant thinly on the dusted mat. Using the templates, cut out 12 black pentagons and 20 white hexagons with a craft knife. Keep shapes that are not yet in used in a food storage bag or cover them with plastic wrap to prevent drying.
黑白色糖皮搓軟後壓簿,利用紙樣分別用小刀切出12個黑色五邊形及20個白色六邊形,仍未使用的圖案可放在食物袋中保存或用保鮮紙蓋好防乾。

With water as glue, adhere the shapes to the sphere like a real soccer ball (I used my son’s soccer ball as reference). When completed, set aside in a cool place overnight to let dry.
用水將圖形按着足球的圖案逐一黏在圓球上(EC取了小兒子的足球作參考),完成後放在陰涼的地方風乾一天。

When the soccer is dried it is ready to be placed on the cake. Here’s is my finished cake.
足球風乾後便可放在蛋糕上作裝飾,這是EC做的足球翻糖蛋糕。
