Can any of you tell me and give me any suggestion on how to make a realistic corn on the cob from fondant ? I'm making a crawfish boil cake and need to make some corn on the cobs. Please help !!

you could use a pearl mold & line them all the way around a rice krispie treat "cob"... just flatten the pearls slightly and that would be very realistic looking.

There is a pic in my photos of a pot with corn and crawfish. I rolled the fondant out in long sections and then swirled them back and forth on the counter to make a "s" shaped over and over again and sliced a knife down the middle section. This made each half of the "s" shape a kernal of corn.

Terrible description but hopefully it will help. Good Luck.

Thanks guys !!! I will try these techniques. The pearl maker idea is brilliant ! I can't picture this 's' shape thing though.

I recently made a cob of corn. I made a mold using gum paste and a real cob of corn, rolled the cob acroos a thick piece of gum paste very firmly, then let it dry. Dusted the imprint with powdered sugar and rolled fondant over it. I worked well.
Mine was for a vegetable cake, so I added husks and did pulled sugar for the hair .... which melted by morning, darned humidity!!!!
