How would you make a graduation tassle from two colors of fondant? I do not have an extruder (they are hard to find in stores) I need to do this for this weekend. It will be attached to a fondant cap. Thanks for any advice!
Try using a garlic press. Just extrude your colors through the press and then put them together.
Yes, the garlic press should work. If you have a hobby lobby or michael's (or maybe another craft store) - I have a small plastic extruder that was very inexpensive I got in the "sculpy clay" section. You might check there. Just a tip - I microwave my small piece of fondant I'm going to use in the extruder for 3 seconds. This softens it just enough that it extrudes quite easily. Then I just let it set for 15-20 seconds before I use it to firm back up.
I dont have an extruder either and nothing else works. so i did just a solid piece of fondant and took a knife to score lines. they turned out pretty well. there are pictures in my photos.
I don't have an extruder so I've just rolled it and then scored the lines as well. But with using two different colors it seems a little harder. You could possibly pipe royal icing in the two different colors over a thin roll of fondant.
Thanks for the tips...I will try them out this evening!
The garlic press worked like magic! Thanks for the tip.
