So... I'm making a first birthday cake and smash cakes for twin girls turning one. I'm hesitant to make the smash cakes with fondant (black fondant at that!) but the mother is insisting.
My real issue though is the mouse ears. I have plans to make the "caps" with the half wilton sports ball bans. I want to make (fondant with added tylose) ears (ahead of time so they can dry) to attach to the caps. My question is what size circles should I use for the ears? I don't think I have cutters that will be as big as I'll need so I'll have to improvise.
AND How should I attach the finished/dried ears. I have a plan to cut slits in the fondant covered cap cakes and wedge them in, adding edible glue- but I fear that may look messy and I want a clean seam. I don't want them to flop around. Neat, clean and structurally sound is my goal. HELP!!!!
