Bernstein bears tree
Cake Central Top Picks
I think I would start by making the basic tree out of RKT and then cover with modelling chocolate to you can play with detail. You can make leaves out of the chocolate and stick to the branches. I would put a cake round (cut to the shape of the tree and attach with a strong royal Icing. Whatever direction you take, just be sure to have support dowels under your tree to it doesn't sink into the cake. :)
Can you by any chance upload the picture to this thread? Fondant on fondant works and chocolate on chocolate will work also - you just use melted choc. in a piping bag as glue and chocolate on fondant works but a picture of what you're trying to do would be very helpful.
Sorry for the delay - I am not receiving any notifications from Cake Central for some reason. Everything just stopped yesterday. Trying to figure it out :(
Anyway, I would try to make the leaves a little thinner to lighten the tree. You could easily just wrap the trunk in fondant and give it some lines with a viener tool. If you plan to do a fence, let the fence posts set up a little before you put them on so they will be straight.
Can't wait to see your pics!
You did GREAT! So cute - you should be very happy. Thanks for sharing and including me :) Did you make the book too?
