I have never done anything even remotely like this so I thought I'd post this question before I waste a bunch of time. I'm working on a Wizard of Oz cake and would like to create a tornado spinning off the bottom of the cake. If I carmelized sugar and wrapped it around a cyclindrical wax paper cone - do you think it could stand on the point of the tornado?
My idea for you is to go look at Lorann Oil website find the gourmet recipes and look at the icicle recipe and you could make something with a thicker piece of sugar like that.

Thank you so much for the website! I'm going to give that a try!
I made my tornado from fondant
You can do pull sugar depending on how humid it is in your area. I use Isomalt about 98% of the time for a application such as this. If you use wax paper it will melt the wax off from the heat.
