My customer wants a candland ranch theme. Which means, she wants hand-modeled candy on and around the top tier and carosel horses around the bottom layer. Any ideas on how to do this? I don't want to try to make "realistic" horses, because horses are very hard, but I think I want to make a template and make them flat so they stick onto the sides of the bottom cake. My question: should I wrap them around the cake (so they are completely stuck flat against the cake) or should I make them and dry them so that they stand up "off" the cake (so straight not curved). I can't think of anyway that the carosel things is going to work with this cake. Thoughts and ideas would be appreciated.
Have you seen Merissa's carousel cake? It's awesome! She did chocolate transfers for the horses and it couldn't have turned out cuter!
I can't do chocolate here, it's too darn hot. The party is outside at a ranch, I'd be too afraid that it would melt. Do you think I could do something like this out of fondant?
How about edible images,, or cokie cuters in shape of horses..
