The picture is to small to see the cake. We can't help you if we can't see what you're looking at!!

I cannot see the photo. When trying to enlarge, it comes out too grainy to view.

Oh, gosh! That's a fun cake. You'll need an engineer to do the framework - lol. I don't know how I'd start that but it is really cool.:duh:

Not sure how on earth they did that with no base, but the way to do it is to secure a pipe in the base with a flange and probably make the bottom half of the basket ball styrofoam.

The cake board looks deep. Maybe the ball is somehow attached to the arch thing inthe back and secured with shelf type supports out  the back of the arch/cakeboard.

 

Did you look at the artists other pictures? She does some amazing work. Maybe you could contact her for advise on the structure of it.

My answer was the correct way to do it. I thought the board looked like cardboard, but if it was made of wood, then the flange would be screwed into that. My post wasn't a joke, or speculation or guessing.

Sorry, that post wasn't aimed at you. I find that I post professional answers around here a lot, only to be ignored and unthanked. I suppose instead of getting aggravated about it, I should just stop trying to help.

search  Basket ball cake spinning on a finger in album: Basketball / NBA on CC it's a similar idea and you can see that the top half is cake bottom half of ball is not like previous poster said and you can see the support that is holding it up through the finger (like previous poster said.) :)

I had trouble following that. Are you saying the whole ball was cake?
