I have a music cake order - to feed 20 people.
And I love the little music notes on this cake, but might change up the flowers with dots. Do you know how these little music notes are made?I'm bad with very small details!

I'm not so good at piping so I would print out notes on the computer and cut them out of gumpaste or fondant.

You might want to buy the music set cutters by patchwork cutters. It has small music notes. You can purchase it from globalsugarart. Good luck!

Yep, piped. I agree with msulli10 who said to print them out and cut into fondant or gumpaste. Good luck. I am sure you will do fine!

You could print them out, place under wax paper, and pipe with royal. Make lots. Then use the best to place on the cake.

I think I will try to make them myself... the cutters are $35 ! But would make them flawless

There's also one of those plastic chocolate molds. I used that a ton of times while my daughter was in high school band.

Do u think the notes might melt though when i'm delivering the cake? I did see them online for only $4 - and would def. be a lot cheaper icon_smile.gif

for the chocolate molds you just use fondant in them and not chocoalte. I place mine in the freezer for about 5 minutes and they pop right out.
