Ping Pong Table Cake

This cake was almost my undoing! We had some rather warm weather last week and fondant hates warm weather! It makes it very sticky and very had to work with.

Ping Pong Table Cake

I was asked to make a cake that looks like a ping pong table for a retirement party. The cake is vanilla and filled with vanilla buttercream and covered in fondant. I wanted to cover the cake in one piece of black fondant but after several attempts of rolling it out I finally decided that one piece just wasn't going to work. I ended up covering the cake with two piece of black fondant. I tried my best to blend the seam but with the weather being so hot and humid touching the fondant to blend just wasn't really an option.

The paddles, the net and the ball are all made of fondant. The net was another issue. I let it dry for a few days but due to the weather it wasn't a taught as I would have liked.
