I was thinking about using my cricut because I finally figured it out. I have a cartridge that's all baby stuff and was thinking about using gum paste and making a shadow of the stroller then making cutting a regular stroller to "glue" on top of that.

Here's the images from the cartridge. http://meeshscrafts.blogspot.com/2010/06/sneak-peek-cricut-lite-cartridges.html

Not sure if you get what I'm saying I just don't know if it will dry sturdy enough to work as a topper..?

I recently did a topper that way. I made a shadow of a font, cut it twice from gum paste rolled thickly (number 1 on the Kitchenaid), and glued the support wires between the two. I then extruded gum paste and put that on top of the two shadows as the actual font for extra dimension. Worked well, IMHO icon_lol.gif .

i generally make my cricut cut toppers out of a shadow layer and a top layer about 2 days before i need them. They do fine... see my latest cake picture.
