I need to do a short notice order. It sounded cool but now I need to figure out how.
Do you know the Crypt Keeper? I need his head basically. I can mold it and do it from rice crispies and fondant but what about the hair????
I'm thinking spun sugar may be the closest thing that is ediable. How does that hold up in the humidity? I think cotten candy would be too thick. His hair is really stringy.
HELP!!! If anyone has pictures that would be appreciated too.
I would stay away from sugar unless you pop it on the very last minute or you have something you can add to it to make it stay up and not droop.
Sorry no help, but I can't wait to see how you tackle this! Best of luck!
How about using fondant or gumpaste and pushing them thru an extruder for individual strands.
In this website you'll find instructions to make a zombie cake. You could adapt some of the techniques to make your own cake. It uses spun sugar for the hair. You could try to make a small batch and see how it works with the current humidity.
Well is it a good hair day or a bad hair day? Dying to know what way you are going on this one!
The irony here is that if you use sugar and it gets all icky, well wouldn't that be a good thing, actually?? (Presuming it doesn't just completely melt off of course.)
