Help I was asked to do a shower cake, and they want a cherry blossom cake, I don't want to just pipe the branches on I was hoping to find a way to make the branches(smaller branches) come off the Cake I didn't know If I should use wire and I can't seem to find any references to this HELP PLEASE!!!
You could use wire that has some padding added to it, like some toilet paper, then tape it down to make a thicker stem like branch. The modeling choc. would be heavy..... so take that into consideration. You can take with a darker brown tape or beige and dust over that with petal dusts for a more natural looking branch.
thank you I have been going crazy trying to find help
Don't go crazy girl! LOL
I'm happy to help anytime.
I made mine with cloth-covered wire (do you know the type I'm referring to?) I used floral tape to attach several together to form the "branches" and then dipped the whole thing in melted chocolate (candy melts). Here's a pic:
Of course, you will be making yours much smaller using thinner wire...
Also, if you use wires, make sure to insert some coffee straws or regular straws first into the cake then insert the "branches" into those. If you're like me, I don't think wire should come in contact with the cake (even though most of the wire is covered with the chocolate). JMHO!
Thank you so much I will be using your ideas. and post the cake so you can see after March 14th, You guys are so helpful !!!!
