Which cake are you referring to? There are a bunch on that page, and I don't see lettering on the Sweet Sea Anemone cake...am I missing it? (Haven't had my coffee yet... icon_wink.gif

My mistake. The rainbow cake at the bottom.

Gotcha. )I did something similar on my animal print sweet 16, Yankees Graduation cake and the #1 on the jungle cake) I used modeling chocolate, which basically functions just like fondant (just not a fondant fan, myself!) You roll a long skinny 'snake' (as my kids would call it!) and just shape each letter, I usually taper the ends to a point and make it curl in (or out) into a spiral. They should firm up if you let them harden/stiffen for a day or so (however long it takes fondant to set up).
Good luck! HTH!!
