Ok this post is LONG overdue. I had meant to put this post up but one thing led to another and welp... I forgot! *So Sorry!!* However, I see that this picture tutorial is one of the most pinned pictures on our Pinterest page and thought... I better put this tutorial together!! This is a super fast tutorial on how to make fondant rope. No extruder or other fancy device required! Just fondant, your hands, a small sharp knife, and a scale!
Cliff note YouTube version here:)
Marshmallow fondant (Wilton works great here as well)
* And yup that's pretty much it!:)
And now.. for the steps!!
Step 1. Weight or divide two small pieces of fondant into 1 ounce pieces.
Step 2. Roll these two 1 ounce balls (individually) with good pressure in the palm of your hands to remove all creases. Once smooth use your fingers to start start rolling out the pieces slowly and evenly. Be careful not to go too fast otherwise you might overly thin parts of them.
Step 4. Cut ends with a sharp knife. This will allow you to seamlessly place another one next to it.
Step 5. Apply rope lengths to a fondant covered cake by brushing it with water.
And that is it!!
I told you super simple!!;)
