I am making a castle cake and am covering the turrets (waffles cones) in pink colored sugar. I tried painting it with corn syrup, then shaking the sugar on,and rolling it but it's not working that well. The color of the cones (brown) is still showing through and I did it 2X It works well when I make cookies, but this does not seem to be working for this project!
Any other suggestions on how to do this?
You could cover the cones in melted white chocolate or candy melts or Royal icing or Glace. Then shake the sugar on before it drys.
I covered the cones in melted white chocolate, and then I rolled the cones in a bowl of the colored sugar. That's the only way I could actually get it to stick. If I just sprinkled, they rolled right off.
I would try icing the cones in colored buttercream or colored royal icing and rolling in the sugar. I have a castle to make this weekend - let me know if that works!!!
Tried RI and didn't like the look. I'm going to try pink Wilton candy melts. Am going away this weekend, so won't have time until next week!
