I emailed the person who made this cake earlier in the week but have not heard back from her yet.

I was wondering how you would making the bowling pins stand up in this picture? The cake I am making will be in a car for awhile and I am worried about the pins falling.

Thanks!

well you could do it several ways...
Attach cookie stick to cookies before baking or after... then stick cookie sticks in cake icon_smile.gif

OR if you did them in fondant/gp mix or pure gp then you would attach stick to GP before it gets to hard and let dry or attach with gumglue icon_smile.gif

Yes, I will be using gumpaste/fondant. So sticks are the secret to this? That is very helpful, thanks!

If I were doing this cake, I'd be inclined to wait until I arrived at my destination to place the bowling pins.

Just a thought.....

Gayle,
That is a good idea and definitely something to be concerned about. Problem is, the cake is being picked up. The lady lives close to an hour away. Maybe I will have her place the pins on the cake, if I think it is easy enough. I can just lay them flat in a box.

Thanks for all the help from both of you!

. . . if I was doing it I would probably use the stick idea . . . but I would go a couple of steps further . . . I would attach a front (bowling pin) and a back to the stick and then finish them off with a bead of "glue" (icing) along the edges so that you couldn't see the stick . . .

Place all the pins so she can see what it's supposed to look like. Then once she looks at it, and before she drives away, remove them, and put them in a different container(s) and then she will know where the sticks go based on the holes in the cake. She can reassemble it at home.
