What is the best way to make a sillouette stand on top of cake? I read about someone inserting a lollipop stick but I would think it would be too thin to do that?
Any ideas I would love them? Thanks

Most likely they stuck the lollipop stick to the back of the silhouette using royal icing, and then stuck the stick into the cake...HTH thumbs_up.gif

You can also use skewers if the lollipop sticks aren't long enough.

I have done it that way and used candy melts to attach the stick to the back. I rarely use RI, but I always have candy melts.

I also use candy melts for this.

On one of my cakes I had a wall I needed to make stand. I sandwiched two popcicle sticks (they are flat and wider than lolipop sticks) between two layers of fondant. That way, the sticks didn't even show from the back side and I didn't have to worry about them popping off.
