A friend of mine asked for a sailboat themed cake for her son's 1st bday.
I was hoping to do something 3d.

Her invites use a simple 2d sail boat similarly shaped to this:

Any suggestions on how I would make the mast & 2 sails?

The cake is due on the 4th so, not a whole lot of drying time.

thanks!!!

Plenty of drying time if you use gumpaste. I'd use a wooden dowel for the mast and make the sails from white gumpaste with wires stuck in the corners to attach them to the mast.

Can you clarify," wires stuck in the corners"?

Thanks
