AI have an army cake request but they want the dog tags as part of it. Does anyone know how to do it? I keep thinking I could use the dog tags maybe and create a mold but Im not sure. Any ideas accepted!:-) Thanks!

I was just thinking that I'd add dog tags to my shop, so that's weird...I'd cut out a piece of gumpaste in the shape of the tag, make a little hole in the end for the chain, and press the letters into it using a letter press that you can get in the clay section of the craft store (they come in different fonts. I have some that look like regular typewritter printing, but they're for metal stamping.) Then let them dry and paint them silver with silver luster dust mixed with vodka. You wouldn't need a mold, they'd be pretty easy to do but you'll have to get the letter stamps.
