I've only ever lurked up to this point but I'm really hoping someone can help me out. I'm doing this cake for a wedding this weekend and I am having a hard time with the branches in fondant.
I'm wondering if it would be better to use modeling chocolate? If so can anyone tell me how I attach it to the cake (do I need gumpaste glue or anything?) and how I can create a 'realistic' texture? I've never worked with modeling chocolate before..can I even put it on fondant?
Thank you SO MUCH!!!! Here is the picture she sent me.. I have NO idea where she got it from but if it's someone on here I'd love to know how you did it LOL
I use the pre colored brown/chocolate satin ice fondant works great
I use modeling chocolate! to make it more pliable, I add white fondant to it (yes, it stays brown!) Usually a 50/50 mixture, but you can add less or more fondant depending on the color you want, or just use it with out fondant! Here is a picture that was about 60/50 (more fondant that chocolate)
