I am making a 3d golf bag for my dad for his birthday. I think I have the bag part of the cake figured out in my head but I am not sure about the clubs.
Would I make the handle using a dowel covered in fondant and use fondant or gumpaste or cake covered in fondant for the actual club? I am just not sure which would stay together and on the handle. I was then going to paint the club silver.
Any ideas would be most welcome! Thank you
I strongly suggest using modeling chocolate (chocolate melted and corn syrup added to it). It holds it shape much better than fondant and gumpaste might be ok but they wont be edible (that is they wont eat it unless they want to break their teeth!) But use a dowel you can cover that in chocolate as well. The key is after molding it, to stick it in the fridge to firm up. But I think you will end up with a better product in the long run!
Cant wait to see the pics!!
Maybe Rice Krispie shaped?
Thank you so much for both of your ideas.. they both sound great and make perfect sense! My dad loves chocolate so I think I will go with the modeling chocolate. I guess I can probably find recipes here. Will it accept the silver paint?
Thank you again
Yes, I made a baby doll cake and was worried about the flesh color and I had no problem with it. Just make it thicker consistancy then you would gumpaste or fondant. So it will be more like regular acrylic paint consistancy. And I believe Mike McCarey uses airbrush on his also and we've all seen how his stuff turns out!
I used fondant for mine but would use 50/50 fondant/gumpaste if i did them again. I used lollypop sticks.
