I am making a cake with an american flag on it that will be standing up. Is there anyway to make the flag pole edible? And if not, and I use a lollipop stick or a wooden skewer, how do I get the gumpaste to adhere to it. I have tried before and the flag must be to heavy or something because it rips off of the pole. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Depending on the size of the flag, you could coat a pretzel stick in chocolate.

To get anything to stand up in a cake, put a skewer through it and skewer it down into the bottom board.

That's a great idea. Cut your cake board out of 1/2" foamcore then purchase a flag - sharpen the end in a pencil sharpener. Wash the flag stick off well with antiseptic soap, insert into a straw cut to the level of the top of the cake. Insert the pointed end of the stick (bottom) into the cake and down through the foamcore.
