I am about to make a baby shower cake with baby forest animals. I am in need of some ideas of how to make a tree that would be 3D. My idea is to construct a tree that is upright and then form the animals and display them around the tree. The tree doesn't have to be out of cake but I would like to fondant what ever the idea. Any help would be appreciated and pics too.
I made tree stump, it was not the one with the face on it. I think those are so cute, but mine was for my daughters lumberjack theme party. but I have seen the stumps with little animals around them.It's in my picture if you want to take a look. If it's what your looking for I'll tell you how I did it. If not do a search just using the word tree and you might find exactly what you're looking for. I found a lot of different ones when I was doing the stump. Good luck.
if you search the gallery "tree cake" I had several cute ones pop up. good luck
get some grape stems, wash & let dry well, then pipe royal icing leaves all over it. attach to a pretzel rod, use as is or cover the pretzel with icing to look like a trunk...
I made a tree for my tree house in the gallary. I used rice crispy treats covered in pastallage. Then Imixed yellow green and brown with vodca and I painted it. Hope this helps.
I made a tree for a little girl's 1st birthday. It's in my pictures and called Fairy tree. I referenced the instructions in a Wilton yearbook for it, and it used the Wilton Tall Tier stand. I'd be happy to PM you with instructions if you'd like.
I am going to look into everyone's suggestions. I just wanted to thank all of those that responded!! I am very appreciative!
