Hello All, I am attempting to make a rope ladder for a beachy wedding cake and am struggling with how to make it work. I tried several different ways...fondant, using an extruder and securing it with water as glue. It was too brittle and broke when I picked it up. I tried Decogel and it was too flimsy. I tried SugarVeil and it too was too fragile. Last night I attempted again using Isomalt but couldn't get the strings thin enough. I wanted to have it look realistic with it being wavy kind of like a fishing net. More 3D then just laying on the cake. My last attempt will be using chocolate tonight. SO my hope is someone out there has done something like this before and can share. Thanks!
how did the chocolate work out -- did you use candy clay or chocolate chocolate?
i think the sugar veil avenue is the best -- maybe try another brand or recipe
This may sound crazy, but, have you tried licorice candy strands. I they are called Twizzlers or Red Vines. They have different flavors now.
What an excellent idea!!!!!! I think the licorice would work great. It would allow for movement and not shatter.
