Place the avocado back on the greaseproof paper*. You can either texture the surface** or smooth it.
If you decide to smooth it: First use the smoother and then use two pieces of leftover sugarpaste with a little amount of corn flour to smooth the round surface. You can leave the avocado like this to dry for a short while – until the paste gets a little firmer. Don’t leave it for a very long time – you will need to make indentations and cut a circle out for the seed (see next steps).
*If the greaseproof paper is dirty from piping gel, replace it with a clean piece.
**To texture the paste you can use a texture mat or a toothbrush (clean and used for cake decorating purposes only).
