AHello! Can any one help me please? I'm doing a 70th birthday cake for my friends mum and I ordered a hand made topper to go in the centre, as requested by them. But it's smaller than I though it would be so I need to jazz it up with some bear grass. But I don't know how to use it or insert it into the cake? Please help!! Thankyou in advance ;) x

Real bear grass?  Push a straw into the cake and insert the bear grass into the straw.  You might want to also look at Lily grass.  One is thicker and the other is more delicate.  depends on the look you want.

Oh and make the straw a wee bit shorter than the top of the cake.  If you don't fill the hole completely with grass pipe on a dot of buttercream or royal, or use a tiny ball of fondant to hide the hole.

AAhh thankyou ;) I probably want something dainty as the 70th topper is quite dainty! Thanks again :) x
