What Would Work Best?

We are planning a surprise party for my mother and the theme is dragonflies. My friend is excellent with cake and is making ours. Problem is, we don't want fondant on it and she says the decorations I want on the sides with look cartoonish if made with icing then put on an frosted cake. Does anyone know where we may be able to find some thick, stiff decoration gel to make the dragonfly decorations? I have included a picture so you will understand what I mean. Please help as the party is at the end of the month.

Thank you

Go to this site, it shows how to do this with a flower, but I think it could be done with the pattern that you want. Hope this may help you. Good luck and what a beautiful cake that was. Nancy of CA
