Hi everyone, glad CC was here when I logged in today! I need some advice and hope someone out there can help me. I have a Halloween cake to do and was wondering what the best thing is to make a fence out of. I want to make a rickety (rought iron looking) one that's kinda falling apart. I never was good at color flow. Any ideas on what to use? Anyone have a template maybe? Also, I am having trouble on what to use as a basis for a tree. Is wire a good idea then covered with fondant? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I'm not sure about the gate but I can tell you how to make the tree like the one on my pumpkin cake. If you look down in the comments, I posted instructions for someone else.

Good Luck!

I've made fences and gates from thin strips of gumpaste, attached together. You can place the vertical pieces at slight angles to look like it is falling apart. I used gum glue, you can also use royal to glue them together.
I can't find the pic of the haunted house one that I made so I hope you can get the idea from this.
