I need to do a branch for a cake soon. I think it is made of gumpaste.

The branch goes across the cake and is kind of twisted and stands off the cake a bit and I need to attach flowers.

Does anyone know how this is done?

TIA! icon_smile.gif

You could try taking some wire and cover it in gum paste after you have shaped the way you want it.

I just did an entire tree w/treehouse (sorry I haven't downloaded pics yet) and the way I did it was to shape the basic shape I wanted out of wire and wrapped the wire with foil to give it "branch like" shape. I then covered the foil a little piping gel and then fondant. Turned out really well.

Wire with foil sounds like a great idea!

I've used florest wires coated with a little crisco and then covered it with fondant.
