Hi,
anyone knows how to make a skeleton hand like the skeleton hand holding the top cake by Brownen weber on spooky cake contest? I just saw a little part of the show and did not record it icon_cry.gificon_cry.gificon_cry.gif
Was it modeling chocolate or fondant? Was it covering a dowel? you know to support the top cake?

If I remember right, it was made out of pastillage. HTH.

I would think it was wrapped around a dowel or pvc pipe.... I have that taped on my DVR right now so I can try to watch it and find out for you.

Do you think each finger was done individually or it was just one piece? if they were done individually how were they connected?

Ok, I watched it again last night... First of all she has a special stand made to look like the bones of an arm. It was black until they painted it and both pieces were curved like real bones so it couldn't have been regular dowels... I'd like to know what she made it out of! Anyway, then she made each finger on it's own wire and then taped all the wires together with white tape.

Hope this helps!

Why dont you email her and ask her? If she doesnt respond, maybe someone that works with her will.

You're right...it cant' hurt to ask. I've been wanting to ask her about her fondant sculpting, what she uses underneath the fondant or is it just a thick layer of fondant??

I'm pretty sure it was a wire sculpted hand she then covered in fondant.

I think she carves the cake and makes certain features stick out more than others. Then covers them with extra fondant before she lays her fondant coating over the entire piece. She did that when she made Ursala in the Disney Villian Challenge.

She actually forms each finger on wires, and then tapes them all together...kind of like you do with gumpaste flowers.

Thank you Courtney. I wonder what material she used for the arm bones...

Maybe some kind of strong metal?? I wonder if you could use copper tubing?

for the halloween contest she actually she didnt carve the cake prior to covering it with fondant.. she sculpted right into the fondant.. they asked her how she did that and it has to do with the icing underneath.. i'm sure its was very thick as well as the fondant..
