I'm making my daughter a Minnie themed cake for her 2nd birthday. I have the ears already cut out of marshmallow fondant but I realized that I have no clue how to attach them to my cake. They have hardended up and the party is tomorrow. Not sure what to do??????

If they are thick enough, run the blunt end of a skewer into them (unfortunately, this is better done when you're making the ears and the fondant is still soft). If they're too thin or too hard, anchor the skewers onto the back of the ears with some melted chocolate - if you do this, just note that your cake won't have a back view. The skewer should be long enough to go almost all the way through, or up the back of, the ear and leave 3-5 inches to stick in the cake. However you decide to do it, when you want to attach the ears, just stick the pointy end of the skewers into the cake. I've never made a Minnie cake, but I've done this with numbers, letters, stand-up plaques and certain sculpted figures, and it's never failed me.
