AHow in the world are these crowns made? I cant figure out what I should dry those strips on so they hold that round form. Please help[IMG]http://www.cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3292418/width/200/height/400[/IMG]
a rolling pin or wads of paper maybe...
Or make each "loop" separately and dry on it's side… then assembly with royal icing.
AAnd you definitely don't want to use fondant, unless you knead some tylose in to give it strength. Personally I'd be inclined to either use pastillage, and if not that, then I'd use gum paste. I'd then do exactly what johnsons described.
AI hesitate to ask why it's an emergency, because hopefully this isn't for an order due anytime soon.
the shape looks kind of like the handle of a mug to me! I would try wrapping these around a mug handle to dry.
I enlarged that photo and that crown definitely has a wire through each curve. Maybe it's not even edible.
.......make each "loop" separately and dry on it's side… then assembly with royal icing..........
Make the loops separately and the bottom band. When dry (at least overnight!) assemble w/royal or melted white chocolate.
AOhhhh, I see the wires now. Well, more than one way to skin a cat, I guess. Personally I wouldn't do it that way, but ok.
AReally, what johnsons suggested is the easiest and quickest way.
Can't imagine why you need the wire (hate them, as I can see some kid trying to bite in) unless you are just trying to get it done in one day.
Just like the old loopy bow construction, just dry individual pieces. And if drying them on the side, you can use a template to keep the size and "loopyness" identical.
