I think you can look on ebay. Or even google it, there has to be some kind of info out there. Sorry I can't be more help. Good luck!

I think making the pumpkins out of marzipan would work well. I don't know if you've ever worked with marzipan but it's got more body than fondant...I think you could put a plastic lollipop stick into the pumpkin and stick that into the cake. The main difference in working with marzipan is that you would want to paint the color onto the finished pieces instead of coloring it the way you would with fondant. Marzipan is expensive. You can buy almond meal and make your own...I've bought it for $12 a pound at the grocery store or for $7 a pound at the gourmet grocery. You have to add almond extract to it though, almond meal alone doesn't have the right flavor.

I'm surprised that your bride wants everything edible but she wants gumpaste instead of fondant...gumpaste is not really that great to eat when it's dry.

went to your site flowerguy, those flowers are as beauitful as the real thing. God sure gave you a great tallent.
this bride no longer wants gumpaste, everything eatible. seems it leaves everything out except, sugar decos, icing or marizpan and i don't think she'll go for marizpan. i'm wondering why i'm doing this cake? haha icon_cry.gificon_confused.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_wink.gif
