Not bad, my idea was working. The piping gel tinted in the colours chosen when applied to the white fondant does appear to be like a stained glass. Here's a picture of the topper at the almost finished stage;
It's all coloured in but needs some boarders between the glass to give it definition; here it is completed. The outlining was done with royal icing tinted gold and a little gold shimmer dust diluted with vodka.
We were quite pleased with how it turned out. But with a cake topper you need a cake. We made a chocolate & vanilla 14x14" cake filled with white chocolate mousse. The main colours Dona chose for the theme of the party were the red & orange and that's what we used to complete the cake.
The cake is covered in ivory fondant and the board was covered in a red/orange fondant. This actually emulated the invitation. The other design elements and the lettering were also done in the red/orange fondant except for the small doves which were made from gum paste. We propped up the stained glass topper with some fondant behind which I think looked better than it just lying flat on the cake.
Vincent who is not only my Nephew but also my Godson loved his cake as did Dona. She said she knew we would come up with something and was pleased with the results. We had a great time at the party celebration which was held at the Copper Creek Golf Club. Everything was excellent, I think I'm still full of the wonderful food served.
Congratulations Vincent on your Confirmation!
Lots of Love from your Aunt Mary and Cousin Melissa.
