I'm wondering how to attach straight lines/ribbons of fondant onto a cake. Every time I've tried, they're always slightly wonky.
I'm planning on making a geometric pattern with strips of fondant. Maybe if I attach a picture, I'll be able to explain better. I'm looking for super straight, neat lines but they always end up a little curvy.
Thanks for all the help, always!
Something like that!
Never having tried that I suggest using a ruler to help keep them straight Not sure w/the lines so intersecting
You could use a flat ribbon, like grosgrain, to mark the lines. They would curve around the cake nicely but still be straight. Or, you could fold a piece of parchment paper to do the same thing. If you make models, you probably have tools with a flat tip which you can use to straighten the lines, once applied to the cake. If you don't have modeling tools, you can use a flat knife blade to straighten up any waves.
use modeling chocolate, after u roll it to the thickness u want , let it set on the counter for a few minutes then cut the stripes with a ruler and sharp blade , the stripes will stay straight and will not curve
