I'm working on my first gravity cake with M&M's. I'm using a straw and melted chocolate for the "poured" M&M's but they keep sliding off. Any tips? tia.
I'll bite: what is a gravity cake? :)
if i get what you mean-- you want to know how to secure the m&m's so they cascade down the side of the cake?
pipe or spread some buttercream/piping gel/royal icing so they have something to adhere to -- don't know why the chocolate is not working -- what's the straw for?
Is the straw what you are trying to adhere the stream of m&m's to?
I'm using the straw to have something to adhere the m&m's to. The chocolate is just a mess, it's taking too long to harden and the m&m's are sliding down.....I have to hold each individual m&m forever and the chocolate is getting all over the candies because they keep slipping and sliding. There's got to be an easier way. :(
oh oh oh -- what about a pretzel and just build up enough m&ms to make it look curvey and not straight up & down--
dip pretzel in choco -- roll in m&m's then place in freezer for 5 minutes timed -- if it's not set then do 1-2 minute increments on the timer -- then get some choco in a piping bag and place some more m&m's where needed and chill repeat as needed till you got it--
i don't think a straw has enough texture to make this happen -- but a pretzel has all those crags and salt
AI used thick royal on a skewer.
