I am needing numbers "4" and "0" for a cake topper. Whats the best way for a beginner to attempt making these? And they need to be silver....

I like to use fondant or gumpaste, mixed with gum tragacanth.... THEN... I look at the wonderful inspiration photos that are posted on PINK CAKE BOX websight..... ANNE has the most amazing cakes, and she often times makes free formed numbers... as long as you use something in your fondant to give it some extra strength, and push a small skewer into should be able to make the " 40" easily!!

then, after then numbers have set up.... get some silver petal dust, mix with a little vodka until it is the consistency of paint, then paint your numbers!!! I would place the numbers on a piece of waxed paper when your painting the silver on it so they don't stick to the paper!!
