I'm making a cake that is a replica of the Miami Dolphiins Sun Life Stadium. (Tried to attach photo, but that didn't work) Going up the side of the stadium, there is a spiral walkway. (If you'd like to look at it, just google Sun Life Stadium) I'm wondering if anyone has any idea how I can make the spirals that make up the ramps going into the stadium. I would like to use either chocolate or gum paste, but I have no clue on how to go about forming them. Wondering if anyone had any ideas???


Sorry I couldn't attach a photo......

I think u can apply the steps on how u make fondant twirls. Except that u wont lie flat the fondant/gumpaste on a stick or a wider support like a glass. Rest / dry it with lots of support like marshmallows in between but got some toothpicks tucked in in the inner part for more support... Well thats how i will make it. Guess i made any sense.

Heres a thread on how to make fondant twirls

Never thought of that. icon_redface.gif I could actually use a piece of PVC pipe and do it like you do the little swirls. I will experiment with that and see what happens!!! THANKS!
