So trying to come up with a better ideas for a POW-MIA cakes that I do at various times thru out the year for their fundraisers and such stuff. In reflecting on their motto and organzation logos I need a way to make "barwire" complete with the barbs(little spike parts). If its just a sheet cake I'll occasionally just pipe it on but was going on out on a limb with the next fundraisers cake and was hoping to take the barwire make it in to a cluster circle and have it standing upright on the cake. However I'm playing hell figuring out how to make it happen. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I saw an episode of Cake Boss where they made barbed wire out of black string licorice. They tied knots in various places to create the "little spike parts" I don't know if this is what you are thinking but it is the only thing I have seen. Hope this helps!
What about using sugarveil?
I was going to suggest the black licorice too. Maybe I was channeling Buddy. lol
You could also use modeling chocolate. I bet that would be real easy.
I made barbed wire for a Toy story cake.I took brown fondant and ran it through a clay gun and made strings of spaghetti like strings.Then I broke little pieces off and sort of wrapped them around in spots to make spikes and then layed it out kinda wirey and free to appear like wire.When it dried I airbrushed a bit of orange and brown mixed and some copper to look rusty..It came out good.
mandiee... You are in luck!! I just found this for you, hope it helps!
this one shows you almost at the end how it was done!
