AHello, I'm making a Charlie and the chocolate factory themed cake for a birthday party and want to incorporate the everlasting gobstopper since its such a big part of the movie. I've attached a picture - I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on ways to make it? I'm hoping to have it as one of the props on the cake. I was thinking of making it out of fondant or even starbursts? Any ideas are welcomed!![IMG]http://cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/2927711/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
I would just do them out of gum paste or 50/50. Very cute idea!
AYeah i think gum paste may be the way to go.. I may play around with the starburst idea ahead of time too - that way the kids can eat them and enjoy the taste! :)
I'd use marshmallows and cut them with greased scissors into the more square shapes, then paint them with food coloring. Connect the pieces together with melted white chocolate?? I don't know if that would stick.
I agree...Starbursts would be cute too because you could cut them into the rectangles and triangles. maybe you could some how heat the bottoms to glue them onto a balled up one. Please post pics when your done sounds like it's gonna be a great cake!
AWell here it is... I could've done a MUCH better job on it however had a death in the family and had to travel a 19 hour drive so I had to start and finish the cake within an evening including purchasing all supplies!
