Your letter looks awesome btw :)

     

     

    They did paint both sides, but I made  aspecial request to have them do so.  I just realized that i never posted my completed mongram.  My Fi cut a flat metal scewer in half and I used E600 glue to adhere it to the back. It shouldn't show when placed on the cake since I will have flowers at the base. I didn't bother taking a opic after adding the scewer stand-offs.

I haven't completely thought this part through obviously... :-/  but I know we will find something that works perfectly. ;o)

      Yea i got a thin letter as well, the thinnest one they  have, 1/8 I believe...i asked them to paint it and they only painted the front...kind of annoying now i have to get silver paint to paint the back myself! I was thinking about how to get it on the cake, since i haven't yet started to decorate it.

          No it's just painted silver on the back,  If I find extra time I might, but i don't think it's necessary and i used really small crystals, so it was a bit more time consuming than anticipated,

              Thanks Britney! We do a lot of grilling and had plenty of skewers to spare,  but you shouldn't have any problem finding them.  We chose the flat skewer specifically so it would have more adhering surface than the typical round skewers.  But I've even seen a pack of 6 in our local market.

                thanks. I'll def check out our local stores to see what I can find. :o)

                    I wasn't going to have a cake topper. Now I am having second thoughts with 2 weeks to departure!
