Any advice how to make a candlestick cake topper? (edible....) I'm thinking rice krispies covered w/ fondant or gum paste? I need it to be STURDY! thanks
Depending on how big you would want it, I would probably go with the RKT and cover it in fondant. You can just put a dowel in it so it will stay in the top tier. Now if you don't need it to be real big you could use a 50/50 fondant to gumpaste to make it, or add tylose powder to fondant and I would still put a dowel in it.
how to make silver?
You can use silver luster dust and vodka or lemon extract to make a paint and just paint the fondant.
Modeling chocolate or fondant over a wooden skewer. Leave enough of the skewer at the bottom to stick securely into the cake. I did something similar with a camping cake I made, only they were tall redwoods. I used fondant. Make sure you dampen the sticks so the fondant stick to them or use gum glue.
what are the proportions of luster dust to vodka or lemon extract? thx!
I hope someone can you give you the real amount here. I actually just mix until the consistancy that I want. Always start out with a little vodka and add slowly. You don't want it to get to thin.
