Living in the great state of Texas, I have a request for a Texas cake with an oil derek situated in the heart of East Texas. I was wanting to create a 3D oil derek that will stand in East Texas and put a Yellow Rose "The Yellow Rose of Texas" at the base of the oil well.
What is the BEST product to use in order to construct the oil derek? I need it to dry hard and not collapse.
I tried using Royal Icing, but when I go to assemble the structure, it breaks.
Ashly, Have you tried Chocolate? If the event is going to indoors that would pretty good.
Royal icing would be all that I can think of.... chocolate would work but if there is any heat or humidity you can run into a problem.
Try making it out of gumpaste. If you are careful it should stand up well.
