Ryone for all the inspiration- Amazing work on here. I am looking for a way to make the ropes for a wresting ring cake. Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated. I have a tendency to over think a problem and make it harder so thought I would ask first. Thanks again. Tina
I am not a proffessional baker but I love baking and I also love to play with my cakes
1) you could take speghetti and wrap very fine fondant around it to look like rope perhaps? But I have been told that the speghetti will get soggy if left too long.
2) you could maybe use liquorice rope or fuit rollups? Again I am not sure what would work for you.
There is a candy called Twizzlers that is already braided like rope. I think it might only come in red though.
I have made several, and i use red pipe cleaners. Saw that on others cakes. It worked really well.
I've made a wrestling ring cake and it is in my gallery. If I remember right I went to michael's and bought a very thin wooden dowel in the wood craft section. When I got home I painted it with red food coloring or, I think I just put some of the food coloring on seran wrap then wrapped that around the dowel and moved it up and down vs painting with a brush. After that take a clean dish towel you don't mind staining and wipe off the excess.
