The icing you mean? I would say fondant.

Yes, I agree it is thin stripes of fondant twisted/woven together.

That looks like the edible Easter grass they sell at Easter time. I've seen it in all the drug stores (and Target) with the regular Easter grass. I would guess it's actually wafer (rice) paper. I would guess you could get the same effect by coloring fondant and cutting it into thin strips. Then setting on a mold to dry.

I would say that it is fondant, put through an extruder and then put inside a bowl to dry. That's how I would do it anyway.

Okay I have another question about this cake. For the owl, to make one that large (about 7-8") What would I use? Would I use just a big hunk of fondant or would I cover something with the fondant and if so what would I cover? Ive made tons of fondant animals etc just not one more than 4" or so. thanks again!!!

i'd use a rice cereal treat shape as the head, then cover that with buttercream to smooth it, then cover in fondant.

Edible Easter grass! What will they think of next. I'm going to have to stock pile some when it comes out again.

It's amazing the things I learn on Cake Central!

If you can't find the edible grass and dont want to use fondant, green gum ( like Wrigley) cut into tiny strips might work too.

I guess I'm very behind the times as I didn't know about the edible grass = but then, now that I consider that I guess I had seen some but totally forgot about it.
And the idea of using gum is a good one also icon_smile.gif
