Will Gumpaste Dry Hard Enough To Use As A Kind Of Lid?

for a partially covered English football stadium I'm making a cake of?

I'm practising various bits of it over the coming weeks & wondered whether gumpaste would dry hard enough to not need any support if you see what I mean? Or would I maybe be better doing this part with card or something similar?

Thank-you icon_smile.gif

Gumpaste does dry to be very hard. I guess it depends on how thick you roll it and how large of a piece it is.

brilliant, thank-you. So long as it dries hard it shouldn't need any other support I don't think then. The pieces will be about 4 inches wide, with 3 inches on the cake & the fourth inch kind of over-hanging where the stands would be covered so most would be supported by the cake itself anyway.

Your cakes are fantastic sweetsbyl, I've never attempted anything like this so seeing it done successfully is encouraging!
