Im doing the garden cupcakes out of the Hello cupcake book. Problem is I cant find the fruit roll ups for the vines. Does anyone have ideas to make vines for someone that has no creativity!!

I don't have that book, so I'm not sure how you would make vines out of Fruit Rollups (do you cut them into strips?), but if you are working with fondant, you can just use a clay gun to extrude thin ropes of green fondant and let them dry twirled around dowel rods or bubble tea straws (depending on the diameter of vines you are seeking If you don't have a clay gun, you would have to roll long, skinny ropes by hand.

You could also simply pipe them with a tip 3 or similar small round tip in buttercream or royal icing.

I figured it was down to piping. Fondant and I are very very big enemies icon_evil.gif . As for the fruit roll ups, the picture they show is a roll up of some kind that you can take apart each color and it comes out looking like "vines".

Thanks for your help ladies!!
