Hi fellow decorators!
I'm making a golf course cake for this weekend, and I'm looking to have edible trees on it. My question is, what's the best way to make realistic trees that would go perfect with a golf course?
I have seen trees piped out with a leaf tip, but most of them look very messy. Any suggestions?? Ideas? tips???
Really appreciate any help! TIA!
I've used this technique before but without the pretzels and with tip 74. http://www.wilton.com/technique/Christmas-Trees You can cut down the size of the ice cream cones by wrapping them loosely in a damp paper towel and microwaving for 10 seconds. Immediately remove them from the microwave and cut with a serrated knife. That way you can have several different sizes. If you do use the pretzels just be aware that they get very heavy. I've had them start falling over and tearing the cake.
Thanks for the tip! I'm gonna try it out.
Any other suggestions? Just in case I need an alternative. Thanks again!
Gumpaste is certainly the most solid. But you may not have enough time for them to dry if you want 3D ones. I've made flat ones before but I don't think that's the look you're going for. http://picasaweb.google.com/micro.jenn/Cakes#5506747608463375570[/img]

Thanks so much for the suggestions! I went with the gumpaste trees, they turned out awesome! I'll post a picture soon. =D
