I wanted to cover a large cylinder with fondant for a castle cake. I am planning on using either PVC pipe or empty paper towel roll. Questions are ... will fondant adhere to directly to PVC? and ... if I use the paper towel roll and cover it in foil, will the fondant adhere to that? I am fairly new at this and could use a little help. Thanks so much.
Yes. The castle cake in my gallery has styrofoam cores for the turrets. I just brushed them with water and rolled the fondant over top.
I made a boy castle and used pringle cans for the turrets and just painted them with piping gel, then rolled them in fondant.
