I am about to make a cake which has horns on it. I am making a butter cream cake.
Just a question, how can I add the horns on this. I would be making fondant horns, as making it using cake , I am not sure if it sticks to it. I would use skewers though. The problem is they have to be in that position atleast for 4-5 hours. Is there any other option.
So will the buttercream cake handle the pressure of the fondant horns.
Fondant is heavy and expensive. You'd be better off using Styrofoam: cut to shape then cover with fondant.
Thank you for your reply. I was looking for edible options.
Other I can think of is using a waffle cone, but it will be strainght and not curved
ideas for you -- use the waffle cone and just make the fondant curved - except i'd recommend using modeling clay -- see what i mean just use the cone for the skeleton and shape the m.c.
or you could use rice krispy treats -- i would grind them in a food processor first -- i use 5 cups rk to 16 oz marshmallows and 1/4 c butter and some vanilla -- 'melt' this don't boil it before adding the rk -- let them set up over night -- stick a dowel in it so you can attach it down into the cake board for stability --
no problem-o -- you got this -- peeps will love eating/wearing the horns! hahaha
y'know pack the rkt together solidly -- you can trim it a bit after it sets up so i mean you don't have to get it exactly perfect at first -- but you're depending on the marshmallows to hold this all together so pack it tight and give it time to set up -- can be made in advance
when i get my rkt all mixed up i keep it on a pot of hot water to keep it malleable while i mold -- and you could make them one in two different batches too (but 2 pans to wash oh no! ;) but i would make a big batch and hold the remainder while i molded --
i'd process the rk first so that it holds more solidly --
and i think i would put the dowel in so then enter the cake and hit the cake board vertically, straight up and down -- i would not put them in the horns like popsicle sticks if you see what i mean
Yes I also feel the rkt is the best option. I just came to know from google about that option. Thank you so much
