Okay, so I work at a church as a Kitchen Assistant and we serve Wednesday Night Dinners to the church folk. We also do the staff
lunches. My boss put me in charge of the dessert for the staff lunch and I plan on doing a three tiered cake. It's going to be a
Halloween Theme, due to the holiday. So here's my dilemma. I want to use sugar and make a creepy black tree to put in the middle
on the top tier. But I know nothing about pouring sugar, or working with sugar at all. I think my best route would be to hand pour it, but
I just don't know. Would it be a good idea to try to pour it, roll the trunk into an actual round shape and just kind of pull out the
branches by hand? I've been cooking since I was like 7, but this is new territory for me. Any ideas, advice....condolences?
