I have only made eye glasses once a few months ago. But how I did it was to use gum paste and create two eye glass fronts exactly the same, and then a left and a right ear pieces. Let them dry completely flat. For the lenses I made them out of gelatin prepared like you would do for making butterfly wings.

Once everything was dry I adhered them together with royal icing colored the same as the gum paste. However, use as little as possible around the gelatin or it may warp.

Below is a picture of the cake I made the glasses for. HTH

My daughter helped me to make glasses for a cake. She used foil and shaped it into glasses and I covered the foil with black fondant.
