icon_smile.gif How do you suggest to make a letter B gumpaste monogram to use as a cake topper?
I am not sure if I can make it using only one piece of gumpaste...
Thanks a lot!

I don't use gumpaste or fondant all that much. However, I was thinking you could put your "B" in the font you want over your gumpaste and use an exacto knife to cut it out.

I don't know if that would be good or not. Maybe this will bump you up and someone else will have a better answer for you.

Actually, that's exactly how I do it. icon_smile.gif I also use my extractor to make a "bead" around it so that it looks finished. Just remember to leave it thick enough to support it's own weight, and put the skewers in the bottom when it's "wet" so that you can put it on top of the cake. If it's too big and heavy it's too hard for the cake to support it, and it will lean so keep that in mind.

Good luck,
Pat

How do you insert the initial in the cake? How do you protect the wire? What do you exactly do with you extractor?
Thanks a lot!
