Pulled Sugar Snowflake Topper-HELP!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

So I am working on a snowflake topper for a wedding I am doing this weekend(cousin- so this is all gratis icon_confused.gif

I have several poured sugar snowflakes(5 inches in diameter). I am going to make some more isomalt today. I need to glue (a front and a back together, but sort of in a pyramid configuration so that the tops touch)for stability. The bottoms will be glued to a sugar circle (with a hole in the middle) I already made.

Here is where I am stuck.

I am placing this topper on the top of a cake in which I am pulling a set of xmas lights through(just one small strand)the center of my cake. I have the opening (pole all fixed). The problem I am struggling with is how to affix the light in between my sugar pyramid(so the snowflakes light up). I need the light to come up through the cake and "clip" stay up through the pole. That way the light is positioned in between the two snowflakes.

Any ideas? Needs to be something that is preferably not done on site but ahead of time to topper. (Otherwise I guess I could hot glue some more poured sugar around the topper on site). Little worried about doing that.

Thanks K8memphis for you're ideas and help. I used the poured collar idea you mentioned and it worked great. Gave me the basic shape, then I heated it with my torch and molded into the shape I needed. worked first time- that doesn't happen often.

Also, found the led battery lights- pack of 12 for $10 at party city. They are with the balloons in the store.

Check out my finished cupcake display, cakes, and topper in my gallery. Thanks for looking. you guys keep me excited about new techniques. Can't wait to see what is next.
