does it take you to make fondant details for a cake? I'm beginning to think I'm too slow...or too anal when it comes to trying to make things just right. I was asked to make 2 lounge chairs and 2 palm trees, all 3-D, and it took me about 3 hours. When I do things like chairs, I actually "build" them cutting each piece to fit then assembling them. With the trees, I made each palm one by one, wired them, added the veins, put them on the tree base (which are thin dowels), then added the bark, and added coconuts. When I told the person I was making them for how long it took me to make them, she said "It took THAT long"? This is someone who doesn't do fondant work, but it did kind of take me back when she said that. She hasn't seen them yet, but it got me thinking. Am I too slow???
