Bake cake according to the directions included with the sports ball cake pan. Remove from pans and cool completely. Tint frosting the desired shade of yellow with the paste food coloring. “Glue” the jar to your serving plate with a little frosting. Frost one half of the cake and place it flat side up on the jar. Frost the flat side. Place second half of the cake flat side down on the first half. Frost the entire ball. Frost the sugar cones and place them about the cake at equal intervals, four on each half of the cake as shown. Use toothpicks to support the cones on the top half. Cones on the bottom half will rest lightly on your serving tray. Roll out fondant on a surface sprinkled lightly with powdered sugar. Cut a 1-inch strip of fondant to place around the “equator” of the ball.
