I am going to be making a Black Hawk helicopter and will be building a wooden support base for it. Once I put the cake on it and carve it, I will be covering it in ganache and then fondant.
Will the fondant stick to the wood (which will be the underside of the helicopter)?
I appreciate any tips if any of you have made a helicopter before.
I had a hard time getting fondant to stick to my dog base . I finally made the bottom of my base sticky with just a little karo .... sorry not much help!
Haven't made a helicopter, but have been able to attach fondant to wood. I believe I used a tylose/water mixture to help adhere, but think just using water would have worked as well. Just so there is some moisture.
I've recently done a Rapunzel castle cake and my top wooden board was covered with fondant. I just took a paint brush and got the underside of the board nice and wet and the fondant stuck like a dream!
this is the link to see what I mean. Hope it helps!
Malene- your cake is fabulous. How did you get the rice krispy treats to stick to the PVC? Just squish them around it?
