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