Easy easy. Just cut two 1/4 or 1/8 sheet cakes into the numbers. Trace the numbers in icing first so you know where to cut. If you dont like how your numbers look you can scrape the icing and keep drawing it until you like the shape. Trim as little cake as possible. For your zero, I wouldnt cut the center out only because it will be VERY difficult to ice inside that hole. When I do zero's I usually just fill in the center with a complimenting color. When your numbers are done you can place them next to each other on your cake board. I like to refriderate or slightly freeze them first so its easier to move the cake without damaging it.

I'd love to know the answer too, as I have just done a '5' '0' wedding anniversary cake, and it nearly killed me trying to get the fondant into the inside edges of the '5'. Didn't look too bad - but not too good either!
Here's the picture (please don't cringe!) - they wanted it all gold too!

Any tips for attaching fondant on tricky numbers very welcome.

Good luck with your '5' '0'!
