Use a computer print out of your style. Cut out the paper and place over rolled fondant with tylose added waiting till leathery then cut with a knife. Let dry. Easy peasy. HTH

Ok you said 'any' help.

You can click on the picture if you want and it will get bigger.

Strange cake but the wings flapped and they are pate choux, cream puff stuff.

And this one has the rockets red glare done in pate choux.

Pate choux is lightweight --you can pipe over your pattern--bake it slower so it doesn't brown too much--it is sturdier than royal and lighter than fondant/gum paste. Colors well.

If you go here ^^^ and scroll down past halfway you will see a bible verse done in pate choux. Versatile stuff.

Just a thought. Another tool.

In my pix I did a gold monogram on a cake - colorflow with gold lustre dust gilding. Hope that helps! icon_smile.gif

I did something like this for my grandparents 60th anniversary. I'll try to attach a photo. I went to the website "Toppers With Glitz" and chose a font that I liked and printed it out in the size I wanted. I put wax paper over the template. I then did what the previous poster suggested - used gumpaste, rolled it out as smoothly as I could and laid it out to dry (I also made a small hole in the bottom of each with a lollypop stick to attach later.). It dried for 2 days - I then used pearl luster dust, but you could use whatever medium to make it gold. I attached Swarovski crystals ( they were not going to be eaten!) with royal icing and dipped the tips of the lollypop sticks in white candy melts and inserted them. They turned out quite strong and I was very happy with them.

They did take a while, so if this is for a client, I would charge accordingly!!

Sorry, I can't seem to add an attachment - never have figured out what I'm doing wrong! See my photos for the cake with the 60 on top!

Good luck! Hope that helped you out some.

You guys are awesome! thanks so much.... I think I have the info to get me started... I like both ideas....
I have time so I can let it dry for a while.... that's why I asked ahead of time cause I wasn't sure if I needed something that would dry slow or maybe patillage.. but the Pate Choux sounds interesting also... and I like trying new mediums... is there a recipe for it? or do u buy it?

TIA

I'm glad it helped! I know Satin Ice has some different tutorials on their website, they may do a swag. Otherwise, I would probably check on youtube!
Make sure to post your finished one!
