I have a baby shower cake to make in 2 weeks and the lady wants The Letter B on top the cake but I have never worked with fondant or Gumpaste I am new to the cake business always work with buttercreme. I have looked all over for a letter B to buy but no luck. Can anyone tell me the best way to make one it needs to be silver.

I havent worked with gumpaste or fondant either.
How about the infinity picks that you would put on a wedding cake. I have seen the letter B in Walmart..

Hope this helps but,

I hope someone has a better idea.

Silver Pearl Dust and Vodka works the best & fondant just knead it and it should be very easy to cut the letter B or use cokkie cutters.

Most people use either gumpaste or a 50/50 mix of fondant and gumpaste. 50/50 doesn't dry as fast. Does it need to stand up? If so there are several ways to do it. You could sculpt it or use a cookie cutter or find a font on your computer and print it the size you need and cut it out and use it as a template. If it needs to stand you are going to want to insert something (skewers, wire, etc) prior to it drying so it will stand up.
