Tree trunk; tree bark; sunflowers. Rustic. Country. Barn wedding. I wrote to CC to see what's wrong: I cannot enter a single word to thank you for your awesome comments or explain what I did!! First of all, I used chocolate ganache on the sides and white ganach on the tops. Go to the Winbeckler site, CakeSuppliesPlus.com and order the "Tree Bark Texture Mat Silicone" for $22. I don't know how you could get this texture otherwise. Site says it works for buttercream (I tried and agree but wanted ganache) and fondant (would agree but didn't try). Procedure: Dust the mold heavily with "poof" (1/2 cornstarch; 1/2 confex sugar) because you DO want the white to stay on the ganache for the effect. Then thin black, brown (s), mossy green(s), and white/beige with extract, vodka, or, my favorite, peppermint schnapps (!). Notice that each layer is an experiment, but what generally worked best was black with a small, thin brush in the deepest recesses, vey thin white with a wide, course brush lightly over the highest points (up and down was better than sideways), and brown(s) and green(s) randomly applied. Cake topper by BlacksmithCreations on Etsy. Board covered with burlap. "Carving" by dipping a very small ball tool in hot water then wiping dry; melted the ganache perfectly. Sunflower inspiration by Edna - I love her - De La Cruz. I am very glad to give further insight and/or answer questions as soon as CC allows me to do so!!
