I am making fondant/gumpaste candles. Should they be made on a lollipop stick or spaghetti so that there is a way to insert them into the cake? I have had 2 different occasions where I made pieces that I stuck directly into the cake and they "melted" or at least softened and broke off. I am assuming after 2nd problem that this is a definite no no.
Any advice or techniques greatly appreciated!
I did fondant candles last week on wooden skewers cut down in size. I also let them dry for two days before I used them.
I would go with wooden skewers, Tooth picks if your candles are small enough, and then let them dry for a couple of days beforehand
Thank you both so much! I will do this from now on as I had never given it much thought that the fondant/gumpaste would get soft and basically disintegrate.
