I have purchased a wedding cake topper wtih a bride and groom dancing...
It looks like they are two separate plastic figures glued together with some really strong glue. I need to "separate" them in order to use them on a divorce cake. Has anyone dealt with this? Any ideas... afraid that a solvent would dissolve the plastic figures right along wtih the glue.
Help Help!!! and thanks!!!! icon_confused.gif

Yep....hack it off...the splintered brokeness of it is probably a desired look anyways. Is a true separation ever nice and clean anyways? Heh heh.....

I've always wanted to make a cake like that... I just need a reason to make one.

Wow. I never heard of a divorce cake. And the 2nd cake IS funny. If you make a cake like this it just might cause some laughs and a good time. It definitely made ME laugh icon_biggrin.gif

howdydoody, I don't know how big the seam is that joins the two figures, but if it isn't a long, or big connection, maybe a hot knife to melt through? I have a woodburning tool with the exacto knife attachment I use to cut foam board and that's the first thing I thought of...though _Jaime_'s technique and philosopy are perfect.
