I've seen the thin fondant/gumpaste numbers, or animals, and guitars on the top of birthday cakes. I've search on here and the only thing I could find to do it with is white chocolate and a popsickle stick on the back of it.
Is this the only way? does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

I would like to do 2 guitars on top of the cake, for my brother's b-day (I'm making the electric mayhem cake, he's a musician and shares my joy of the muppets). I seen a picture of 2 guitars leaning toward each other in the gallaries and had a "WOW" moment!!!!

Thanks so much guys!!!!!

LOL! Too funny!

Well...looks like no one wants to answer either of our posts!

I looked at your profile - I always wanted to be a sign language interpreter!

Another option would be florist wire stuck into the fresh gumpaste. You'll need a straw or something in the cake to support whatever you use and protect the cake.

Simple way to do the florist wire... have a candle lit... get the end of the wire VERY hot... stick it about 1/2 thru your number/letter or whathave you.. it will stay put ... let it dry for a few hours and voila icon_smile.gif

Great tip, Christi! Is this for hardened gp or fresh (or both - LOL)?

Both my friend icon_smile.gif

This is only if you don't want a stick you have to cover up on the back icon_wink.gif
