I was watching a repeat of Ace of Cakes last nite - the Harry Potter cake. Anyone know what they used for the trees? I think this was posted when it aired, but I can't find it.

He spread out this green substance, maybe RI or chocolate? But then they crushed it all up and stuck it on fondant trees. It looked like those fake trees they use on model train displays.

I saw that and thought the same thing..."What was that?" I think it's crushed up RI but I'm not 100%. I'd be interested to see if anyone has tried RI or knows what this is.

I think someone on here had mentioned buttercream. I think they said he spread it out thin let it dry then scrape it. I think that is right I'm not 100% sure thought. I hope that helps

It was a thin layer of Buttercream that he let dry out on thin sheets of parchment paper and then it just crumbled.

BC huh? Do you think it was thinned BC? I'll have to watch it again - it seemed to spread like melted chocolate - my BC doesn't do that! LOL

I saw that episode, I'm almost positive it was royal.

Someone can call them and ask. They are helpful that way.

I also think it's royal, my guess is scrapped out like with a knife or something similar to make it fluffy. icon_confused.gif but I don't think they'd share the tip, they gave the impression on the show to be a very special trick that Duff invented shhh.gif but who knows! icon_wink.gif
