So, I've been reading every single post there is about making a UFC cake. I have everything figured out. I took the advice and idea from one poster about using non-slip black matting as the wire for the cage, I picked some up at the Dollar Store today and it will look just like fence! I want to use black candles as the post. Now here's my delimma (I'm probably over thinking this). How do I connect the matting to the candle? It's a red velvet cake that I am frosting the cake in crusting cream cheese frosting. I am using sugar sheets and edible markers for the decorations and have two little plastic MMA guys. I am new to cake decorating so I will not have any fondant, gum paste, or royal icing to stick to it. I will have the netting above the cake so not to touch it, so whatever I can use to stick it to the candles will be okay.
Thanks so much!
