My nephew has asked me to make him a turntable cake with a liquorice record on it. Has anyone made a liquorice record? I have found a place in New Zealand that sells rolls of liquorice sheeting that, perhaps, I could cut out. I have also found a recipe for liquorice that you set on a cake pan and cut up. Wondering, if I pour the mixture onto an old vinyl record, would the record melt? Would I be able to partly set the liquorice and imprint the record on top?
Any advice or thoughts would be most welcome. Thank you.
Here in Canada I can buy what we call shoestring licorce It’s very long and thin, just like shoelaces. So essentially, you could make a record using the licorice and cardboard round. You would cover the cardboard round with parchment paper, and apply either sugar syrup, or melted chocolate, and starting in the middle, lay down the licorice going around and around until the circle is achieved. If you can’t find shoestring licorice, the regular thick ones, cut in half would work too.
