I'm wanting to make a Hockey Net ( 3D) standing up and about 4 to 6 inches tall , but I'm wondering what type of edible material would work the best . I was thinking pastillage or even RI .... so I came to yous to help me out .
What would you recommend ? I would like it to be edible and sturdy . This Hockey Net will be used as part of decoration for a cake ( may be even to be eaten ... never know ) .
How about chocolate? I wouldn't want to eat pastillage and chocolate might be a little sturdier than RI.
Don't know when your cake is do, but have you look into sugar veil or as I have just ordered and learned about myselve, unbreakable gel? Don't know if this will help yo any.
I made a volleyball net out of fondant. I used my extruder to make the thin pieces, then glued them all together to form a net. It looked really cool! Unfortunately, I made it too long, too ahead of time, it hardened and broke when I tried to move it. But for the hockey net, if you used some tylose/gumtex mixed with fondant, it should work just fine
Can only agree with the sugar veil. Chocolate might break more easily.
Thanks everyone ,
As for Sugarveil , It wouldn't get here on time for when the cake is due . I was thinking on using fondant or even chocolate . I will give myself a pratice run first and then determine what medium is best to use .
Thanks again .
