I made a bunch of these for my granddaughter's birthday cake lastyear. I used gumpaste (actually fondant with about 1 tsp of CMC added for each pound of fondant) and they came out very nicely. I guess it's time to catch up on posting my photos, huh? I'm sorry I don't have it up so you can see it, but the cake was a spectacular success with all her 8-year-old friends.

I Made a them a few days before so they would dry, I would have used gumpaste or even a 1/2 fondant 1/2 gumpaste mix.. just didn't have any on hand..

I just used plain old marshmallow fondant as I did with this cake.

Hope that helps!

I have to tell you, by the way, that this is probably the cake I've had the most fun with, because my granddaughter was watching over me most of the time. It was so much fun that I kept making up stuff to put on the cake, and she even contributed with a gumpaste emery board. Hope you enjoy doing yours as much as I did!
