How To Make A Number Cake Topper From Gumpaste

I know that there are other ways to do this, but with numbers that have strange contours and don't have a straight "leg" to insert a wire into, I like doing it this way. It gives the entire number some support and if it breaks in half at some point the whole thing won't fall apart because the wire will hold it together.
