I am making a bbq grill cake for a party this weekend. The idea came from a wilton yearbook in the 90's. Anyway.....For the grate they say to "paint" royal icing onto spaghetti. At first it seemed too think to paint so I thinned it but then the spaghetti showed through. I tried the flexible RI and that was a joke. So my next plan of action is rolling out gumpaste ropes. Any other ideas? It needs to be strong enough to support burgers and dogs made of modeling choc. If the gumpaste doesn't work, I am out of ideas. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Oh and if it matters I am looking for something the size of a shoestring.
what about using silver luster dust w/ some extract and paint that onto spaghetti.........or for a non edible option, paint it onto some skewers?
I like the skewer idea. I was trying to keep it edible but who is really going to eat spaghetti covered in RI anyway Thanks
My hubby made the grill cake in my photos. He used dowels that he covered with Americolor Black coloring. It covered it really well. He cut this cake at the wedding and just removed the dowels prior to cutting.
how about pastillage? it is very hard and supportive..... then just airbrush it after it is totally hardened..
Thank you for the idea but the cake is already eaen, lol. I used dowels and gumpaste. I will have to research pastillage because I have no idea what that is. Thank yous for all the ideas!
