Fruit and Vegetable Modeling

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone!

I want to make a cake for thanksgiving that has a cornucopia on it. I have figured out how to make the cornucopia basket, and want to put fruit in it. I tried looking online for instructions to make either marzipan or fondant fruits (pumpkin, apples, oranges, pears, etc...) and can't seem to find any. I was wondering is anyone here could suggest some websites to look at.

Thanks a bunch!

Can't find anything since the new changes!  Tried your source & was told "Sorry, We could not find forum.cakecentral.com".  Do you know of any other place for marzipan vegies & fruits, photos & how to do's? Thanks.

If you see to your side you will see more links.

 

If that is not what you need, google  " how can I make marzipan fruit"   lots of selection there!

 

Good luckthumbs_up.gif!

 

Ciao!

These instructions are included in Many BOOKS.  I don't know why somebody would make a youtube tutorial when the book instructions are so good. 

 

Can you follow a printed recipe and get something edible?  Then you can for sure follow printed directions for modelling fruits and vegetables.

Thank you.  It's so much fun to see how others work including all the extra links.

Using modeling chocolate works great for this.   The warmth of your hands lets you work with it for a long time without it cracking.    Just color it with the candy coloring gels.
