I'm currently trying to put the ropes around my wrestling ring cake and i'm having trouble. we're using twizzlers and trying to get them to stick to my chocolate covered pretzel stick posts. they're not quite long enough and they won't stick. any suggestions???? thanks!
Are you using more choco to glue them on and holding them until the choco cools enough to hold them?
Seems to me twizzlers are thick and the weight is just too much. Aren't they twisted? Can you seperate the strings?
Maybe using something ticker than pretzel *sticks* would help. Any chance you have pretzel rods?
Just throwing out suggestions hoping something will help
I tried red string candy that the stings pulled apart. I had the same problem, in the end I was blessed to try smashing the ends together and they stuck. I also used pretzel rods covered in chocolate clay with gumpaste loops to hold the ropes. Feel free to look at my picture. I hope this helps also.
Thanks for the tips! I ended up buying shoestring licorice. It's just like twizzlers but each piece is about 3 feet long. I was able to tie a loop in it to stay around the post and had plenty left to reach the next post. It turned out great!
