How would I do this? The slice will not be in the burger it will be next to it so the whole thing will be showing. I want it to look as real as possible.
I'm not experienced in fondant, so I would use decorated cookies for the tomato slice.
I googled tomato slice, and found some that seem easy to make in cookie. http://images.google.com/images?gbv=2&hl=en&safe=off&q=tomato+slice&btnG=Search+Images
i like the cookie idea!
in fondant, you could do a red disc, piping gel for the juicy bits, and something yellowy piped for seeds? and i guess you can do all that on a cookie!
Modelling chocolate would work, too.
red circle then cut out or pipe in dark peach pink trianlge add some jell to give a glossie look and then a few sesame seeds. I have done this with bc, mmf, royal, and color flow. I like the fondant best but second choice would be in bc. good luck - hth
Strawberry cake mix cookies. There ya go, that'll start it off right.
Thanks everyone! I'm going to stick to fondant. I have pipping gel to so I will use that as well.
it is so easy with fondant. I think you will find that it is easier than you thought it would be.
