Graduation is soon approaching and I'm trying to get my designs in order. One graduation party that I'm doing cakes for is 3 of my largest sheet cake. One cake is going to have their senior pictures on. The next cake is going to have a wildcat on it that is out of rkt. (I hope anyway) and the last cake I would like to have a letterjacket on it that looks like it is hanging on a stand surrounded by football, basketball, golf, track and etc. All the sports stuff will be molded out of mmf. I need ideas on how to make the jacket look like it is hanging. And the kicker is, I want even the support (if possible) to be all edible. I will try to upload a drawing, but it may be too large. (If I get it uploaded, please forgive my drawing. I can't draw for anything! icon_biggrin.gif )

I'm not sure if this would work but how about rice krispie treats?

i was thinking the same thing! icon_rolleyes.gif

but...if the rkt ends up being to heavy, you may want to try a 2D fondant plaque. icon_wink.gif

I've been thinking about this for the last two days. I don't know if I want make the jacket itself out of rkt and have it "standing" or make the support/stand out of rkt and just make the jacket out of draped mmf. Does that make sense? Any extra advice would be appreciated.
