Even if I'm one of the few Italian guys that doesn't like soccer, I thought it was a cool idea to make a design resembling a soccer ball. Or a C60 fullerene "buckyball". This is easy and fast to cut, just pay some attention to the table and the last tier since there are no meets. I like to leave the pentagons frosted to get a better "soccer-ball" effect, but you can polish them...
