Hi again everyone!
I posted yesterday about doing buttercream swirls on a wedding cake. Change of plans! I will now be doing the swirls out of fondant (or gum paste). Which would be better? Also, is there a mold out there that is good to use, or should I do these by hand? Your help is much appreciated!!
"Swirls" is a very subjective word. Attach a picture so that we can offer advice that would achieve what you are trying to do. I read your other post and I thought at first you meant scrolls because it was a wedding cake. Once we see it, it would be easier for someone to steer you in the right direction.
Saying swirls is like saying car. There are many different models.
Scrolling type swirls maybe? I have only used fondant but know that gum paste is supposed to dry harder. I hear a lot of people mixing the two to get a really good consistency... I would say if was scrolls you could do it by hand. The scrolling I see is random, not mirrored or butterflied if you know what I mean? But idk maybe there are molds for that.
