do you make each piece separately (i.e. head, torso, legs, arms, shoes), let dry, then "glue" together with water/royal icing, or do you build the whole figure and then let it dry? I'm wanting to make a scarecrow for a cake next month, but I've never made figures before. Any help would be appreciated icon_smile.gif

Usually allowing pieces to dry first makes them hard to stick together. when I've had to do figures that need to stand up tall I usually will dry the legs first then build the body onto the dry legs. I poke a couple of toothpicks or some dry spaghetti into the top of the pants to give the torso something to hold onto when assembled.

Thanks! I never would have thought of the toothpick support. icon_smile.gif
