Thanks. icon_smile.gif

Hi,
Making a little pair of glasses is fairly easy, you just need one length of wire and bend it into this shape,

using pliers, for the circles of the glasses you could bend them around a thin pencil or something the right diameter,
The wire you can get from craft shops, a thin, soft wire is best so its easy to bend,

Hope this helps, good luck! thumbs_up.gif

If you would like an editable version I used RI to make my glasses.

Sorry, CC will not let me add an attachment (file is only 14.8KB so I'm not sure why), but if you have access to the Naughty Cake's section you could look at my pic to see an example. I only have one cake in this section and it called the Viagra Cake.
