It's to make the arm on a record deck, I was thinking of making a kind of sausage shape & then a small, thickish oblong to glue onto the end of that & bending the sausage slightly so that it sat on top of a fondant 'record'.

What would you make it out of? It doesn't necessarily have to dry rock hard & I would like it to still be edible if possible but wondered which would give a better result if anyone has any thoughts. Or shall I just experiment & see how it goes?

I would also use 50/50 this will dry firm but not to hard so that it will still be edible.
