Maybe the summer heat is getting to me, but some how I can't conceptualize how to do this... I need help!
I want to use my clay extruder and shape a curly number 5 to use as a topper for a cake for this weekend. I have wire, I have coffee stirrers, I have fondant, I have tylose.. what I don't have is any idea how to get the wire inside the "5" so you can't see it, but it still holds the number up-right. Why can't everyone just put a "1" on top!
Any hints or advice would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!!
I just did a 21 on top of a cake and used half fondant, half gumpaste. I let it dry for most of the day to harden and was fine on top of the cake. I just put toothpicks in when it was still soft. HTH.
I personally use tooth picks too to help support any decorations like that.
