Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray the inside of three 6-cavity half-sphere silicone molds with baking spray. Place the molds on baking sheets.

Step 2

Make cake mix according to package instructions. Equally divide batter among cavities in half sphere molds.

Step 3

Bake for 24 to 28 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool completely.

Step 4

Meanwhile, place an empty mini muffin tin in the hot oven for 10 minutes.

Step 5

Place the Isomalt nibs in a microwave-safe measuring cup. Heat on high for 1-2 minutes until it comes to a boil. Remove the cup from the microwave and allow most of the bubbles to disappear. Carefully pour into the cavities of the hot muffin tin, creating thin round discs. Allow this candy to harden for at least 15 minutes. Then turn the muffin tin over and pop the candies out.

Step 6

Roll the white fondant out on a silicone mat. Cut triangles that will fit inside the dimensions of your round candy discs. Using small letter stamps, imprint the triangles with the words “yes” or “no.” Brush purple food coloring over the triangles and allow to dry.

Step 7

Place one candy disk over top of each triangle, allowing the words to show through the candy. Set aside.

Step 8

Roll out the remaining white fondant and cut into 1-3/4 inch circles.

Step 9

Roll out a small amount of black fondant and cut 9 number 8 shapes using a small cutter. Attach the number 8’s to the centers of the white fondant circles using a small amount of water. Set aside.

Step 10

Once the cakes have cooled, trim the excess, making perfect half spheres. Then cut a 1-1/2 inch round by 1/2 inch deep well out of the tops of 9 of the cakes.

Step 11

Heat chocolate frosting and microwave for 45 to 90 seconds, until pourable.

Step 12

Set cakes on a cooling rack over a piece of parchment paper. Pour frosting over cakes, covering completely. Freeze the cakes for 30 minutes.

Step 13

Remove the cakes, with the wells cut, from the freezer and place one candy disk into each well.

Step 14

Roll out black fondant to an 8-inch circle. Cut a 3/4-inch circle out of the center. Set one cake on your work surface, draping a piece of fondant on top. Smooth out the fondant, allowing the center hole to stretch to match the circumference of the candy disc. Then cut the fondant around the base of the cake. Repeat covering all nine cakes.

Step 15

Cut the remaining black fondant and cover the remaining cakes. Attach one number 8 fondant circle on top using a small amount of water.

Step 16

Use a small amount of frosting to attach two cake halves together, creating one Magic 8 Ball cake with a number 8 on one end and a candy disc on the other.
