I am making a cake for my friends who are moving at the end of the month. I will be making a moving box and I wanted to have the top flaps open. I am having trouble figuring out how to attach the flaps to the cake. I am going to make the flaps out of gumpaste but I don't know where to go from there. Any help would be appreciate.


Here are 2 examples of what I am talking about...

I have never done one but I will take a stab! If you do the gumpaste flaps pretty thick you should be able to use skewers and put them in the flaps. When they are dry they should hold up and just poke them in the cake where you need them. For the flaps that are slightly bent Im not to sure, may have to put something on the cake to look like paper or something and lay the flap on it. Cover the seams with frosting. Sorry I couldn't help and hope I did not confuse you. Good luck.
