I used the Wilton Sports Ball pan and one Duncan Heinz orange cake mix (I work full-time, I take shortcuts). Sliced a little off the bottom of one half so it doesn't roll around. Covered bottom half with buttercream and then with marshmallow fondant (the only kind to make--get a recipe off the web). Sandwiched the two halves into a ball with chocolate buttercream, then covered the top ball with buttercream and fondant.

Next day, I piped cornelli lace and dug out a nest for the candle. Surrounded it with silk poinsettias, and voila! Cake.

The only problem is that people don't think it's cake until you tell them, and then some of them won't believe you.
