Can anyone please provide me with some ideas on how to make bales of straw. I see them a lot on CC and was wondering how to get the look of real Hay.
I have made some by covering RKT with fondant that I have colored a streaky yellow/brown. After I make the rectangle, I use the edge of a knife to make cuts to look like the hay. (They should run across the short lwidth of the bale, not the long length.) Then I rolled some brown fondant to a narrow rope and wrapped that around the bale for the twine. (The twine runs around the length of the bale.)
