icon_sad.gif i'm thirteen and making a huge cake for choir.... it's a fondant figure choir on cake risers with a fondant figure director and all that is ontop of a 9x13 sheet cake... how should i construct it and how should i support it? i can't find any info on the web because a cake like this has never been made. I will take any advice that will be given to me... and i thank you so much! This means alot to my choir and my friends.

Try making your figures with half fondant and half gumpaste. This will make them dry more quickly and be a little stronger. If you have access to a craft store that sells sculpting clay, they usually have books on how to make little figures of people and animals that are fairly simple to make.

Use a covered cake board under the risers to support the choir. You could use drinking straws as cake supports since you are not making a heavy cake on top of it. Space the straws about 3 inches apart. Place about 3 straws under the director if it has a solid base.

Give yourself about a week to get all of the figures made and time to dry. Once you have that done, then the rest is a piece of cake. icon_smile.gif

Good luck and I hope this helps.
