Trends have always interested me - it's amazing what can become popular and trendy.
Well, Bacon seems to be a trend. You can find all manner of Bacon-related products: popcorn, lip balm, dental floss. Go to Etsy and you'll find quite the assortment of bacon scarfs, jewlery and clothing.
My daughter, who celebrated her birthday yesterday, also happens to be a huge fan of Bacon. And so I decided to get creative and decorate her cake with bacon.
No, not real bacon (although you can find bacon candy). I made bacon strips out of Gum Paste, and wanted to show you how you too can make bacon decorations!
I purchased some Wilton's Gum Paste mix and mixed according to the directions on the container. Just add water and powdered sugar. Easy Peasy.
I divided the mix in half, and dyed it red, leaving the other white. Taking a small from each color, I rolled out two snakes of red, and one of white and laid them side by side (red, white, red). Then I pinched them together.
