I was thinking of putting pumpkins on a cake that I have to do, but they don't wan't fondant. I was thinking cake balls dipped in candy melts or just piping buttercream. Do you think I can do buttercream? If so, what tip would be best? TIA
I have done pumpkins w/ buttercream. I think I used a large star (maybe 22) tip or a large rouind one. Just make a round lump. Then you can go back and add stem/leaves. I also did them w/ marzipan. Not hard. Need stiff buttercream though. HTH
i used the large round tip, and did a big round pile of Bc then added stem and small leaves, Just hold the tip down and squeeze when it starts building up around your tip start pulling the tip straight up until you get the height you want. Hope this helps
You could also make them out of candy clay........very tasty!
