Here are the molds used for the project: Basketball mold, Basketball Jersey mold, wood grain texture mat and basketball/football texture mat.
Covering the board: Roll out the fondant and texture with the wood grain mat.
Cut the fondant into strips and arrange on the board for the flooring.
When doing the jersey mold, I mixed in some tylose so the jersey would stand next to the cake.
The unmolded jersey. You may use different dusts and coloring to paint your jersey in a variety of colors.
Using the basketball mold, pour in some orange colored candy melts.
After the chocolate sets, pop out the basketball.
You can then use some dust to enhance the lines of the basketball. Wouldn't that make a great cupcake topper?
Cover your cake in orange colored fondant.
Using the basketball/football texture mat to texture the fondant.
Paint the board with a light brown to bring out the wood grain texture on the board. Then draw on your basketball lines.
