I'm making the ears (not the head piece) and a bow.

Is there are a certain thickness to roll out the fon/gum for the ears?

What do you use to attach to the ears so that it sticks in the cake?

Whatever is used, do you insert it into the fon/gum straight in the center or off centered? If it's in the center, do you insert in cake at an angle. To me, when I look at pics in the gallery, cakes with just the ears look slanted with a bow added to it. Some pics, the ears look straight and close together; it doesn't look natural to me.

What's the best way to attach the bow? Thanks!

I would make them fairly thick and with skewers in them... then let dry for 3 days or so.... that's what I did recently on a angelina ballerina topper that I did.... she was attatched to a cloud... the cloud was made out of fondant and I cut the shape... inserted the skewers and let it dry 3 days I think... worked like a charm....

Hope this helps

Thank you Dalis. I figured it should be thick. Now, anyone else have any suggestion for the rest of my questions. TIA!
