Welcome to the family amy! I would suggest laying the strips of gp out over a piece of plain gp that is slightly damp. the give it a quick roll over with your rolling pin to adhere it well. Then just cut your letters out and allow to dry. Good luck, and let us know how it turns out!

I think you just take a strip of each colour and line them up. Add a little water so they stick and roll pushing them together.

That should work. Any other ideas??

or you could do the easy way and just use white fondant and then color the letters after they dry with edible markers. much easier and less waste.

I agree with MoselsbyMark. you need the fondant for the cake itself, so a couple of days ahead of time, color your fondant then use those for your strips over damp gumpaste. Otherwise, if you paint it directly it will be harder to get the colors to match the colors in the cake.

Good luck.
