Umbrella is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made the umbrella for a wedding shower cake. I had a little trouble getting it off the ball. Once I did, I placed it back on to dry but put plastic wrap underneath so I could lift it off easily. I would definately try this again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great addition to a baby shower cake!! I too had difficulty getting the stick to 'stick', but also thinkg it was my error. Step by step directions were easy to follow and the pictures were very helpful. Will definitley make again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loved the look...used it for the duck cake on a baby shower. I had a little problem with the stick attaching. That was more my fault. Love your ideas.
