My brother is getting married in October and has asked me to make his wedding cake.  The only thing requested design wise is that I use a wedding topper that sits on a bridge between 2 cakes.  Has anyone ever done a cake like this? Any pics/links would be great as I cant seem to find any.

That's an old 1980's Wilton classic style.  If you can find any old Wilton books, there will be examples in there..

I made this for my sister in 1991. I like adding bridges to cakes. Just make sure your ornament that goes in the bridge part is light.

I just got the topper. I am not sure how to make the bridge, it didn't come with one.

AI found this picture on the web. The bridge looks like Popsicle sticks or wooden or plastic strips were used to create this bridge between the two cakes. The topper is just sitting figurines. I hope this helps.

I suggest - IF you want the entire creation to be edible - to make a bridge from strips of gum paste.  Make it at least 4" longer than the space between the cakes so you can push the (2") ends into the cake.

And do let us know how it goes - pix would be great.

AHmm. I would imagine that RKT would make a rather nice stone arch bridge. Or stone arch viaduct (i dunno why a duck. Why a duck?)
