I am doing a Christmas style basket of flowers in a few weeks and the customer has asked me to also include fir tree branches with the pointy quills...How do I achieve this?? Do I make the branches first and then attach the pointy things?How do I do this?
Any advice is welcomed!!
any tutorials on youtube?
you mean she wants it edible or out of gumpaste or something?
Yup....and I have no clue how to make it....Oh Man....what have I gotten myself in too...
Maybe make the branch out of brown GP, and little green royal "needles". Kinda reminds me of the technique Colette Peters used for a cactus cake.
What this-mama-rocks said is what I would try.
it would be sooooooooooooo fragile though, I don't see how you could possibly arrange it and have it NOT break. I've looked online and I don't see anywhere that sells them, so i'm guessing it's just not something that will work well. She's totally against using fake or even real pine branches?
No...I think I will end up either piping a branch or using fake pieces..I don't see how I can do it either....She will be fine with it!
Lorraine McKay has a great video tutorial on this
Ooohhhh...I just logged on and saved her subscrition to her tutorials...I'll have to check them out!
