I hosted a 70′s Abba “you can dance” wii party last Friday! I’m going to share the party and my game review on Friday (it was a BLAST!). And of course I had to make a cake, so today I’m going to share it with you! How I made my Disco ball cake!


First put the two have circles together using ganache, place on a small cardboard cake circle and cover the cake with ganache!


Cover the cake with white fondant (I like Satin Ice) and smooth it out. I placed the cake on a cake turn table and slowly spin it while pressing slightly into the cake with a pizza cutter. This will create your horizontal lines. Be careful not to cut through the fondant and also don’t wait to long to do this so the fondant is sill soft and pliable.


Then taking a small tool of some kind (anything with a point will work) press slightly into the fondant and pull down creating your vertical lines. I did 1 row of lines at a time on the top and as I moved down the sides started doing 2-3 rows.


Finally I took out my edible airbrush paint and gun and went to town with the silver! I LOVE IT! It turned out great (and tasted even better!)

  1. Yes please! Can I just have a cake any ol’ time? Yes, yes I can. And I choose a Disco Ball Cake!
    This is super fun!

  2. This is a little too Twilight Zone. Guess what I was making this weekend:

    • GAH! Just NOW catching up on comments from the last month! I totally saw that we posted our disco ball cakes on the same day! Totally crazy. I LOVE your cut out version, it must have taken SO long! But worth it, it looked great! I didn’t even THINK to do it that way. And the rollerskate turned out amazing too!
