you could do a color flow. Have you take the wilton course 2? Its the same as the birds done in that class.
Is that edible? I mean can you cut through it or does it dry really hard?
how about just an edible image?
I guess you could eat it. It is made out of icing, but it does get really hard. My instructor said that when it hardens that you can stand it straight up on a cake.
Another thing that you could do if you wanted to be able to cut through it and eat it with the cake is a piping gel transfer.
I don't really charge enough to justify spending $8 or so on an edible image. I did think of that though. I am still trying to find a printer so I can make my own at home.
The class I took was at a high school nearby. We didn't do color flow. Thanks for the ideas.
