PLEASE DON'T READ IF EASILY DISTURBED!

I am going to be doing a Silence of the Lambs cake for a Halloween party centrepiece. It's going to be a Buffalo Bill style with fondant made to look like pieces of human skin stitched together (really sorry if that's a bit much for anyone here!!). I was hoping to get some ideas about what I could use for the stitches that would look like stitches but still be edible. Anyone have any suggestions? Maybe tiny sausages of black gumpaste?

Cheers for any help! icon_smile.gif

what about shoe-lace licorice? Or I would pipe them with RI.

What about black royal icing? You could poke a hold in each side of the fondant seam and then pipe a small thread in between each hole... Just a random thought.

I agree, use RI.

Problem solved! You know, I just didn't think of RI at all. I think I was just making things a lot harder for myself in my head.

Thanks everyone! icon_smile.gif

When are you doing the cake? I've read about some stuff on here that is edible string that you pipe out and is flexible. That could work for what you are doing?
