I was wondering if anyone has a template or instructions on how to make a beach umbrella out of fondant or gumpaste? I've searched all of the template section and did a search in the forums and found nothing, so I apologize if this was already asked/answered! Is it basically a circle laid upside down in a bowl (or something similar)??
Not sure what size you're making, but here's a tutorial that I think can be adapted...scroll down: http://sugarteachers.blogspot.com/2010/06/lifes-beach.html
Thank you so much! I'm printing the pattern right now...I think the size will be perfect!
I simply used a scalloped circle cookie cutter and then put the cirlcle over a small rounded object, (ie... the bottom of a small cup or glass) to let it dry with the edges drooping down over the edges. The I cut smaller circles and placed on the inside and out side for a little extra suppor. I used a toothpick that had fondant wrapped around it as the stand and pit the tip of the toothpick into the circles that were placed for reinforcement. Hope thats not too confusing. You can see the umbrella that I made on my barrel of monkeys cake.
Thanks just what I was looking for...
