ApplegumPam I wish I were that talented. Unfortunately, I'm not :(
  Please help!
Aww so sorry this happened o you. There is a thread going on right now about posting your worst cake. You should go on it and see other disaster cakes. Post yours if you have a picture. It might make you feel better. ((((hugs))))
I have made a 4 tier wedding cake with only bubble straws holding it up. And that's a heavy cake! I pretty much go by AZCouture's  example list but I add 1 or 2 more than hers for 9" tiers and over. It may be unnecessary but it's for my peace of mind!
Thanks Maybenot for saving me the trouble to type exactly what I wanted to say! I used to use wood dowels but since discovering the bubble tea straws, I converted. Another plus is that they are so super easy to cut!
I always use a center dowel. And I assemble at home. Even though you will only be driving a short distance, you never know when you may have to brake harder than usual. Why take the chance?
For a quick fix, I put the hard gumpaste in he microwave for 6-8 seconds. It softens it up so at least you can make a ball or a sausage without the wrinkles and separations.
Does anyone have a recipe for them or something similar? They are dense, rich and very chocolaty!
I went on the youtube channel for Global Sugar Art and Mr.Tetreault said"If you are laying it on a cake top or sides, it will hold up to the moisture. It would not hold it's shape in a bow or ribbon, etc. The added moisture would cause it to collapse"So I'm a happy caker! By the way if you haven't seen the Sugar Dress Lace in action, here is the video
Does any one know how well this holds up to moisture? I do mostly non dairy whipped topping cakes and I would love to try this. But whopped topping is very moist, I wonder if this stuff would start to melt?
