What are these made from?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Can anyone tell me what the bigger curled things on this cake are made from? They are not fondant/gumpaste right? A client is requesting something similar for their cake. Thanks!!

They look like ribbon to me. The plastic kind you wrap gifts with. Looks like it's been split to get it fine & that would cause it to curl that way. The only other thing I've used that looks similar is artificial bear grass.

I agree with sillyoldpoohbear. It looks like curling ribbon to me too.

There was another post on this exact cake and ? some time back. I can't find the post now but we all agreed it was ribbon.

Nicole, you can replicate these almost exactly by purchasing a set of food-safe wires from Duff.

You can purchase with a coupon at Michael's or similar craft stores.

For the "rick rack" looking wires, I'd just purchase some floral gauge wire (not food safe), bend to shape, then dip the end that is going to be poked in the cake in chocolate so the wire doesn't touch the cake.
