I'm doing rapunzel's tower made of gingerbread and I'm not sure how to go about decorating it. The "stem" of the tower is quite tightly curved, the curve of a can of beans, and the room part of the tower is also curved but not as tightly. How do I ice this? I can't imagine the outline and flood method working too well unless there is some trick I don't know yet. There are almost no flat surfaces on the entire structure except a window panel.
Have you considered using modeling chocolate or fondant? I am a total novice with RI, but I know modeling chocolate would work and it tastes delightful.
Why do you have to flood it ? Just pipe it or apply w/a spatula And I agree with Sandra why does it have to be royal
You might have somewhat better results dipping instead of flooding, but like the others, I would forgo either and just pipe directly on the gingerbread
yeah -- just apply it as stated above and you can sand it smooth if need be -- once dry of course
