I can't post the photo to this site but if you go to pinkcakebox.com, she's got a lot of cute cakes with pregnant mommy's sitting on a 6" cake then has cupcakes underneath. Any tips on how to make these mommas? Do I make it out of gumpaste or fondant? Do I make the body first, put toothpicks in and stick on arms, legs and head? When do you make the clothes? I'm soooo confused. Can anybody help?

I was an intern at PCB, so I saw quite a few of these made. It's made of all fondant (satin ice). The torso is made first, then arms, legs, head. How you dress it would depend on the clothing. For a dress or skirt and top, you would attach and legs first then dress it, but for pants, capris, shorts, you can dress each leg, then attach it, THEN dress the torso. The arms can be attached before or after dressing the torso depending on the "clothing" style.

I will tell you that Cathy, the designer who makes most of the pregnant ladies is RIDICULOUSLY talented, and just looks at the pic on an invitation and can match the colors without a problem, and also create clothing for these figures without a hitch (no patterns, etc.). She's amazing!
