So I got signed up to do a last min cake this weekend which I really dont mind but I am at a loss for a cake topper :S
The cake is going to be a simple 3 tier cake with light blue and dark blue fondant. The cakes will have have butterflies and flowers on it but I dont know what to put on the top of it :S
I was trying to find a K or the numbers for her age BUT the local cake supply place is out and I am not having any luck finding anything.
Suggestions or ideas please? It appears that because of graduation and wedding everything is sold out
Help sniff sniff
you could make RI flo-letters. easy to to do. Look at my fish cake in my pics. those are RI-flo. Just make sure you make two of each letter/number to allow for breakage.
Could do butterflies on wire. Colorflow or chocolate would work for that. Could make letters or numbers out of chocolate as well - even fondant if you think it will dry in time.
If you are making the butterflies on wire idea, here is a way to make them stick instantly. Heat the wire in a cadle flame and then push into the fondant. Be careful not to burn yourself. It takes just a second for the wire to cool down and when it does the wire is stuck in place.
I made a topper out of gumpaste (store bought) and it dried pretty quickly. I just formed the topper around a wooden dowel and let it dry..I think it took about 24 hrs, but that will depend on how thick you make the topper. Good Luck!
