My son's third birthday is coming up in August. We are doing a fishing theme. My plan is to make a 1/4 sheet cake (4") decorated in a pond scene (blue mmf fondant w/ fish accents) and a 6" (4 in high) circle in the upper right corner decorated like land w/ a big stone. My parents have a pond and the boys sit on a big rock and fish.

I briefly thought about making a fondant/gumpaste figure that looks like Zane to put on the rock but I'm too much of a newbie to even attempt it. Now I'm trying to think of other ideas or figure out where I could buy a gumpaste boy.

Wentzville Mo. Here!
Try the gumpaste boy, you have plenty of time to tweek it. You could put a fishing hat on him like your avatar photo, so the face wouldn't have to be perfect. You could have it look like he dozed off with his head down a little. It would be pretty easy I think. Good luck! I also posted looking for Missouri CCer's but no response yet. I was hoping to get a discussion going about pricing here in MO.! Maybe we could all get some type of price list that would be pretty standard going!

I didn't see a MO post. I'm no where near ready to sell anything I'm not worried about pricing yet!
