My husband LOVES Words with Friends...I wonder how to adjust it reflect that ? You did a beautiful job !

Dixiejet thanks for your kind words. It would be really easy to adapt this to words with friends! Make the grid 8x8 ( or whatever size your cake is) white. Then make your board tiles to match the colors of Words. It was easier for me to print the board off on paper and use it as a reference. To make the tiles I used my smallest square cutter( from hobby lobby-I think it's about 1/2- 3/4" square) cut out the yellow tiles and the tiles for the board. I rolled my gumpaste really thin for the board tiles so they wouldn't look too chunky. Let all of your tiles dry then go back with an edible black marker and write on your letters. Have fun and be sure to post pics of your cake!
