So ... I am making a wedding cake for my brother and bridezilla .. oops.. I mean my future sister in law (he he icon_evil.gif ) in mid August in what is usually hot and humid weather. The cake is going to have to hold up to heat as the reception is taking place on their large property and the house does not have air conditioning icon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gif .. I was shocked too!

I am making the topper; a bride & groom figurine and a few little pets they have. If you watch Cake Boss (LOVE that show!!!) they make most of their figures out of modelling chocolate.

My question is, for all you fabulous cake decorators ... What will be my best choice given my very likely weather scenario? I like the modelling chocolate idea and I could keep the figures refrigerated or cool just before the cake is presented.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!! icon_biggrin.gif

How about making the figurines out of clay? or something along those lines, fair enough they wont edible, but once they dry hard, they should stay that way forever and shoudlnt be affected by humidity or heat, and then the brideZ and groom could keep them icon_smile.gif
