Hi all, I am new to this forum and the world of cakes. But I love to bake and am gradually trying to understand the this art.

I am making a rainbow cake for a friend's daughter's birthday next weekend. I intend to use gum paste to make a rainbow over the cake. Has anybody done this before? How many days before do I need to make the rainbow for it to dry and how can I stick it on the cake?

ANy ideas and suggestions are welcome.

THanks

XXXX

To be safe I would give it 2 - 3 days if possible for drying time. When you are making it insert some toothpicks or skewers (like the bamboo ones for shish kabobs) at the bottom edges (where it will contact the cake). Use 2 or 3 per side of the rainbow for support. I use skewers when I need longer inserts when the decoration is large and heavy as they can be cut shorter.

I usually give 3 days because by this time it fully dries up and after that it looks beautiful.
