I will be making my son's birthday cake in June and I am just starting out with not training, I have a skull theme cake amd i was gonna add Skulls & Crossbones, and Spider webs. I do not like the taste of Fondant so i was just gonna use buttercream then add them as if they were painted on a template but i'm not sure if I should use Royal Icing or Gum Paste and hoe to get them flat and square like a picture. PLEASE HELP!!!!
Not quite sure what you mean but if you go to "galleries" and type in skull and crossbones you will get some ideas. HTH
