I just spent all day making a cake for my dad. i wanted to make a golf ball shaped cake. I don't have a ball mold so i uses a stainless steal bowl. the cakes where not totally rounds so once the cooled completely i tried carving them into a more round shape. the cake fell apart, i tried just shaping it together with the icing. that sorta worked. well my dad likes cream cheese icing . once i had it sorta shaped like a ball i put it in to the fridge to set up while i rolled fondant out to cover it , (since the cake just looked like a semi-round oreo blizzard in the fridge) once i had the fondant rolled out and the cake was firm i started covering the cake. the fondant tore, the cake got warmer and the cream cheese icing did too and the entire cake started to melt. Ugh ! awful day in the kitchen. any ideas on how can avoid this in the future? this was my very first attempt at decorating I need all the help i can get. thanks to everyone for listening to me rant lol its just so disappointing to work all day only to have to toss the entire thing at the end of the day.
