I'm making a gingerbread rapunzel's tower and I need to cover the turret roof in purple shingles. The roof already has purple fondant, but it is smooth and would look a lot better with some detail. I can't do anything to the existing fondant as it has set very hard.
I thought wafer paper would look good maybe, but I can't find anywhere that stocks it.
Should I used gum paste instead? I am trying to avoid making the roof too heavy, it is already quite heavy for its size.
what about piping royal icing on there?
you can get wafer paper online at icing images and global sugar art
