How do I get the ears to stay put on the head? I made the ears out of gumpaste and tried making them with popsicle sticks thinking that I would just shove the sticks into the head at an angle. I don't think this is going to work. The sticks look like they are going to break out of the gumpaste. I have since removed the sticks. Any ideas?

do you have time to let them dry with the sticks in them before putting in the rabbit head? What about using Rice Krispies treat to form the ears, then cover in fondant. HTH

thx. I tried letting them dry with the sticks in them but the holes kept getting bigger

maybe they need to be a little thicker. I think the best bet might be using RKT for them. Good luck, hope you can figure it out
