I don't think they took that long overall, there's just a lot of waiting time in between so that the pieces cool down.

Just piped chocolate. Pipe it out and let them harden up before putting the cone together.

Thank you for sharing that tutorial. I saw the same pix in Martha's book and just cringed at the idea of using "real" pinecones on a cake! icon_confused.gif I do have a question for you: my question is on the attachment of the "leaves" to the candy clay center: I'm trying to see how you did it -- are the pointy ends in toward the center? How did you layer it? I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around how it was done.

The pointy ends are in toward the center, and are attached using melted chocolate that I piped onto the center stem. Just pipe the chocolate on about 1" worth of the stem, then layer that many "leaves" and continue up the stem that way.
