I am making a three tiered topsy turvy cake for my niece's waterpark party and I want to make a slide that starts at the top and twists around the cake as it decends to the bottom. Does anyone have any ideas how I can do this?

I was going to suggest to use the flower formers (wilton) but that won't work if it has to curve....can you cover some paper towel rolls with saran wrap and cover them with fondant to make the slide? They would give some and possibly be able to build your slide form that way??? Just toss the paper towel roll after the fondant has set some and is still pliable to bend around the tiers??

Do you have the old Mouse Trap board game? Didn't that have slides in it? If you could get your hands on it, you could use the plastic pieces directly or use them as a mold. Otherwise, find some flexible tubing at a hardware store and mold fondant/gumpaste on to one half of it. That is the only thing I can think of. Good luck!
