A friend wants a cake with a big letter 'K' on top (the cake will be done in fondant). I've of course seen beautiful cakes with monograms on top but I've never done one myself. Any suggestions on how to make one? Can I just cut it out of fondant/gum paste and let it harden, then attach? Or is there somewhere I can buy/order one? I'd appreciate any tips/advice from any monogram veterans.
I actually use stencils that you buy in craft stores for initials or monograms since my handwriting is terrible. Then I either paint on the fondant or fill in with BC or RI. If I need a custom size stencil, I have it custom made online. They are pretty cheap, usually about $10
Doe your friend want it free-standing or flat on top? If it's free-standing you could make it out of candy clay or chocolate....
