I am going to put this on top of a 50's theme cake. The gold records are almost dry and I am going to attach them together as they look and of course the lettering. My question is how am I gonna stand this up on the cake? any clues? I am using Mandott's theme and I left her a message on flickr but I cannot find it. Thanks everyone for your time.

Use royal icing or (for more immediate use) candy melts to glue two bamboo skewers or lollipop sticks on the back of the dried piece. You can insert these food-safe items into the cake. icon_smile.gif

can you attach two skewers to the back with melting chocolate? one in the middle of each of the bottom two records.

Will RI hold better than candy melts? I can do either and THANKS I thought of the skewers but was unsure how to affix them. icon_smile.gif

Either will work just fine. It just depends on how long you have before you need it to be used. I let the RI dry for a couple of hours.

Once the records are dry flip it over and use RI and either popcicle or lollipop sticks and attcach to the back. When icing dries, you will be good to go. Just insert the sticks into the cake - just make sure that there is enough stick in the cake so that the weight of the records don't cause it fall forward and ruin the top of the cake. Hope this helps!

Oh that's too cute!! Is it made of candy melts? It looks shiney so that's what I am thinking. If so just use some leftover candy melts to attach 2 sharpened dowels to the back. Make them long enough to go to the cake board and that should be more than enough to keep it upright. icon_smile.gif

Ahhhhh... it was the luster that made it look shiney. If it's GP/MMF I'd use royal icing. It takes a little longer to set up, but it sets up rock hard. Candy melts might break if it's not thick enough. icon_smile.gif
