How cool! A retro Pac-man cake! This cake actually was VERY scary for me to make, I had never carved a sphere from cake before! Not to mention, all of the horror stories about sphere cakes being structurally unsound and falling apart ahhh!!!!!! I think it turned out great though! The cake was made of a vanilla pound cake, with vanilla butter cream icing. I used a bowl to get that top dome shape, and then baked cakes in round pans and carved to get that spherical shape. The little ghosts I made from gumdrops! I just made a few cuts in the bottom and pinched the little flared shape on them to give them that "wiggly" ghost look!
