Hi all! I am having to do the 3-d elmo sitting down on a 2 tier cake. My biggest fear is having his head fall over. I read alot of tips on some cake pictures that helped alot. Anything special anyone can help me with? I am gonna make his body from the doll pan and his head from the 3-d sports pan and just use rice krispy treats for his arms and legs. I guess i am just nervous about the support and where to put the dowels ect.
i have never made this cake but in reviewing all that you are doing it sounds like you have all your bases covered!!!! i think you are going to do great!!! don't be nervous!!!! you know what you are doing!!!!!!!!! good luck!!!! i couldn't help with the cake but i hope i got your confidence up!!!!!
I think I would dowel his head down into his body and on through to the board.
Thanks guys hopefully it will turn out smooth, I just feel nervous!
