Edible paper cranes?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I'm doing a cake for a 60th birthday this weekend. The family is big into Japanese culture, and I'm trying to figure out what to use for paper cranes on the cake. My first thought was gumpaste, but I'm learning how to fold these cranes and I don't know that gumpaste would hold up during the constant folding and unfolding, and stay soft enough long enough for me to form them. I then thought about sugar paper (Wilton Sugar Sheets, for example),but I've never used this and it's apparently sticky on the back, which won't work for folding. Anyone else know how to make these things edible? Thanks! smile.gif

Have you thought about using wafer paper? If you run it over steam, it may bend well enough to fold.
