I wanted to make a tree. I want it to be smooth and curvy. Do I make the branches out of fondant or a mix of fondant and gumpaste?
What if you tried modeling chocolate? Or... I forgot what it's called (I've never used it before), but you take melted chocolate and mix it with corn syrup, and it makes it very plyable, like taffy. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? What's that stuff called? If I remember correctly, it doesn't have a very appetizing name
Thank you for trying to help me!!
I'm sorry I can't remember what it's called! I'm wondering if the modeling chocolate would harden enough - are you going to stand the tree up?
Maybe you could make it out of regular chocolate, melted and then piped onto some wax paper. Once it's dry, it would stand up and hold pretty well I would think Good luck!
It's called modeling chocolate or chocolate clay. It firms up enough to stand up but it gets soft while your working with it so you would need some kind of support under it until it firms up enough to stand on its own.
I am making a 2 tier cake and just wanted to kind of lay the branch going up the cake. I will try and modeling choc and see how it works thanks!
you could try tootsie rolls
