I'm trying to make a giant peanut with raised vein/ridges. What would be the easiest way to accomplish this? I don't want to have to carve down to get all of them, I would rather add something between the icing and the fondant to give the raised look. What do you think?

yes...like destineysway discribed..roll out snake like pieces and lay them where you want them then the fondant overtop..smooth around so the veins will show.

I'll ditto and add that now's the time to get an extruder so you don't have to roll all those fondant "snakes" by hand.

I have also used modeling chocolate instead of fondant and that worked really well. icon_smile.gif
