anyone know what to use to create the netting on a basketball hoop? the hoop (making out of gumpast/fondant) will be upright, so the netting will be hanging from the rim. Thanks.
first thing that comes to mind is candy laces dipped in white chocolate? not sure how well that would work.
i suppose you could make really thin rolls of gumpaste/fondant and make a netting that way maybe if you can hand the hoop the way it will be on the cake, once its dry and then do the netting on it. Let the whole thing then dry, then attach to cake.
beyond that... no idea.
love the candy lace idea...........I'm going to try that. thanks
Not edible, but what came to mind for me was netting from an onion bag (well washed of course).
If you want to keep it edible, how about trying Sugar Veil.
Lee15 - what is sugar veil & where can I get it? Is it used like fondant?
Maybe try piping royal icing around a cone covered with wax paper or parchment. Just like when doing a princess crown. It will be delicate, so you have to be careful when removing it.
You could also use gumpaste with a clay extruder, and mold it around a cone or cylinder. It's less delicate than royal.
I knew I could count on all you guys...you all have great ideas. thanks, I've been sweating this one.
