I am doing a Wizard of Oz whimsey cake. It's been fun getting all the characters and props together but I am stuck on how to do the tornado... The house is the topper and want to put the tornado behind it....? I thought of pipe cleaners - maybe to tacky?
Thanks for any suggestions.
I don't know exactly how you would do this but cotton candy comes to mind! You'd have to stick it on somehow without touching anything wet/with moisture.
Spun sugar would make a good easy tornado
I just did a search, check out this wizard of oz cake for ideas on the tornado http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1290433
Somewhere on this site is a Wizard of Oz tornado cake. Sorry...don't have a link...but they tried the cotton candy idea. It melted over time.
I believe they eventually made a rice krispy treat tornado on a dowel, then covered it in fondant or icing and painted it in food color to resemble the texture of a whirling wind. I believe they even stuck on little characters as if they had been sucked into the tornado. Very cute!!
Hope this helps
Thanks for all the suggestions....I line the cotton candy idea....going to work on that...will post picture when done. Thanks again..
