Palm tree for soon-to-be birthday cake. Fronds are fondant/tylose. I made the trunk on a double wire armature, wrapped with foil and floral tape and covered with circles of gumpaste, (with the tops cut off to resemble frond scars.) I wanted a curving trunk, but with the weight of the fronds, I had to straighten it somewhat. Even with the long wire, with which I hope to penetrate the cake board, I still fear for its success.
