Globos en fondant Fondant balloons glazed with corn syrup/vodka glaze. This is the best glaze I have found for gumpaste items. Cheap to make, dries shiny but not sticky. Just equal amounts of clear corn syrup and Vodka or Everclear mixed together.
Use Airheads and mini cookie cutter letters to decorate cakes or cupcakes. Heat airhead in microwave for 6 seconds or so, just to get it soft. Press cutter in airhead. If airhead becomes stuck, just use a small knife to pry out.
Gumpaste tip: Use cut-up sponges to support your gumpaste creations. Not only do they support the shape really well, but they also allow air to circulate, cutting down on drying time. - another pinner wrote.
