Help! I need some ideas for making small edible pumpkins for a wedding cake. I tried baked meringue. But, they looked like little orange beehives. I've got some orange colored chocolate paste made. Would this work? Any advise would be great! Thanks.
I made mine from fondant.I jsut molded with my hands and kinda scored them to show the lines.Added RI tops after the dried.
I've done fondant (mixed with a little gum tex or gumpaste) ones as well. Used a piece of thread to make the ridges then a little bit of green for the stem (after making a alittle big of a hole with the back of a paint brush.
Modeling chocolate or marzipan would be my choices. Both are edible.
Maybe cake truffles dipped in orange coloured white chocolate coating? Those would be extremely edible - fondant wouldn't be as tasty
ooo! I love the idea of the cake truffles!
I knew if I asked all you C.C er's I would get some wonderful advise. A Big Thank You to all of you! I'm going to play today to see which idea I like best. But, the cake truffles is winning at the moment. Hadn't thought of that one. I always have left over cake scrapes that my husband is not suppose to eat. I guess this wedding cake he isn't going to get any goodies. LOL. THANKS AGAIN!
... marzipan would be my choice ...
Let your husband eat the scrapes and you can make about 20 pumpkins in like 20 minutes. Use some powder color to make those more realistic.

I just checked out the marzipan pumpkins. Oooh! Those are so cute! That's it. Guess my honey is going to get the scrapes after all. I can hear his sugar going up already. Thanks newmansmom 2004.
Almost forgot. I'll submit a picture of the wedding cake after the wedding on the 16. I've already made about 100 white chocolate leaves and brushed them with luster dust. Made some acorns too out of carmels and dark chocolate. Just so that you C.Cer's can see what you helped me with. I can't wait to see the cake at the reception.
i also use modeling chocolate or modeling chocolate mixed with some pettinice
