Hi guys and gals,
I'm a hobbyist, so my experience is somewhat limited. However, I do enjoy baking and decorating cakes. I saw a design on the Wilton website a while back called "A New Spin on Aging". Here's the link:
I would love to make this cake next month for my dad, who is turning 50. icon_smile.gif
I see that the products they originally listed to make the spinner on top (such as the "column bolt") are discontinued. I *know* there has to be another way to do this that is just as simple (without using that specific Wilton product). However, I'm a little stumped as I've never made any type of spinning decoration on a cake. Any suggestions that I could use to make this (things that I could find at a local craft store hopefully!) would be greatly appreciated. icon_smile.gif

Thanks patrice2007! I was thinking along the lines of Michael's/Hobby Lobby but I think you're right. A hardware story is probably just the place to find something. icon_smile.gif Thanks for taking the time to give me some advice. icon_smile.gif
