I want to make a lighthouse cake topper but I am stumped. I want it to be about 8" tall, maybe making a cylinder out of rkt and covering with fondant/gumpaste.
Where I'm getting stumped is the top of the lighthouse. The glass/lenses and the rails around the top.
Thanks in advance,
You can make glass out of gelatine, same procedure as for gelatin flowers or butterflies, make a thick gelatin, smear it on a flat surface and when completely dry, cut to size. If you can get hold of a small LED you could even make the lighthouse light up.
Railing, make out of pastillage or gumpaste, just give it plenty of time to dry
You're wellcome, make sure to let me know, when you've posted the picture, can't wait to see it
I made glass windows for my gingerbread house from melting yellow and red candies together on a sheet of foil then when cooled somewhat, i scored the 'glass' sheet so it would snap easily into the panels sizes i needed. Not sure if its plausible though on top of a round tower
