I am going to be making an Alice in Wonderland cake and I want to make some playing cards, including the Queen of Hearts. I am thinking of making them out of gum-paste and then when dry, coloring on them with Wilton Food Writers.
Should that work? Any other suggestions on how to make cards?
I've seen patchwork cutters to make cards.
You know, if no one will be eating the gumpaste, you can use crayola markers instead of the expensive food writers.
The edible image looks real! I've made cards and just used fondant, let dry, then used edible markers. Worked fine.
Hi I have made cards like the ones in alice in wonderland, I used gumpaste and fondant hearts etc. Only problem I had was with the hands as the gloves were too heavy for the arms to hold up.
Here's the link in case you are interested.
