I have seen pictures of cakes that have a banner strung across a cake using straws or dowels.  I don't know what is used for the banner.  Has anyone done a cake like this and what did you use?

AFor my banner is used two of the tallest straws I could find, cotton bakers twine and fondant mixed with tylose rolled very thin. I cut a small slash in top of straws, tied a knot at each end of the twine and strung banner HOpe this helps

Thanks!  Did the fondant stick to the twine ok?

AI made triangles and folded the top down over the twine (the fold to the back) used a bit of sugar glue
