You could pipe it out of chocolate.

Lay a sheet of waxed paper on a stiff piece of cardboard. Then using melted chocolate in a piping bag, draw whatever shape is desired. Chill in fridge until firm. Then remove from paper and turn over and re-pipe the back side and attach sucker sticks. This can be in whatever color of chocolate you want. I do a lot of numbers and letters this way. After they are done, then you can outline in another color , or squiggle more melted chocolate around the outside edge and sprinkle with edible glitter or little confetti pieces. Chill again. I usually leave in fridge until I am ready to deliver cake.

This is a fast technique, and very sturdy.
