I have a western themed cake this weekend and need to know how to make hay bales. Also any ideas on what else to do. I'm thinking two 11*15 side by side with a bonfire, pond and hay bales. What else? Thanks so much. BTW it's for a graduation.
I have a couple in my gallery... check it out for some ideas if you would like. When I did hay bales, I used caramel candy pieces and pressed an indention into them to make them look as if they had texture. HTH!
You could try using a rice krispie treat square, and then cover it with brown buttercream using the grass tip, so it looks like short sticks of hay.
I just made yellow fondant squares and used a toothpick to make the indentations and then took a paint brush and dipped it into brown icing coloring and painted brush strokes. There is a pic in my gallery it was a bday cake for a one year old.
for an even quicker hay stack. Shape or cut cake, marshmallow, or rice crispy treats and cover with toasted coconut. Thats what I did for one large hay stack made for my sons first birthday cake. Pumpkin patch theme. It is not in my photos but it is on my website Under custom themed.
I used fondant rectangles, and my fondant extruder with the hair/grass attachment... Worked great!
