I am going to be making a Twilight cake based on the movie. I'm trying to figure out a way to make evergreen trees to put around the base of the cake. I want them to be pressed into the side of the cake, similar to the plastic ones in this picture:
How would you do that? I did a search and found that you can use a fondant cone and snip into it. I think that would end up being a bit fuller than what I want, plus I don't think they could be pressed into the cake. Any advice?
What if you piped them out of chocolate then once on the cake attached either fondant leaves or royal icing leaves.
I would say if you don't mind having to remove them, form them with wire then pipe over it.
But i would prefer them to be edible.
dried spaghetti and royal icing
they can either be made by pulling out branches for the front area (stiff icing) or by making separate pieces then 'gluing' them together ( a one dimensional piece with a few half pieces attached).
kinda sorta what I meant...but in royal and with the scraggly effect you desire
This one is fantastic! Not made with royal but still scragglier than snipping a wad of fondant. Allowed to dry, can definitely be pressed onto the side of the cake.
