Hi all,
I got a request today to make a cake incorporating a gazebo and large redwood trees for an engagement party. My first thought problem there has got to be a cookie cutter set for a gazebo, but i can't find one. I looked in the gallery but didn't see much in the was of gumpaste gazebos. Here's a pic of the one I'm doing. It's going to travel about 3 hours, for family. I was hoping it there might be a mold or something? Has anyone ever seen one?
Thanks for your help.

Hey there
I don't know about a gazebo mould but I'd say your best bet for strength and durability would be to make this using gelatine paste as it will dry rock solid and hold up well. I did a gazebo for a night garden kids cake (not in photos coz it was one of my first cakes n it's not good enough to post) and gelatine paste workedreally well.

What is gelatine paste?

Gelatine paste ( possibly called something different where you are) is basically a paste that is made from scratch which has gelatine in it. It can be used for things which stand proud eg aeroplane wings, sail on a boat etc. as it dries very hard. The recipe I have is from a book but if you want it to have a go i'll pm you so we don't infringe copyright by posting on the forum.

May I be forwarded (PM) the recipe for the geletin paste. I have football field cake to make and this will probably do really well for the goal posts.

Please PM the recipe.

Is it the same as gumpaste marknelliesmum?

No it dries way harder in a very short space of time. I'd use gumpaste for figures but this for stuff that stands proud and has nothing for support
