I have made a few gumpaste figures, a baby, pooh, elmo snoopy, but I have a request for "real" people. Is it best to make a wire support / frame as a skeleton, or can I just the person in pieces and glue together?
Its an odd request for a wedding cake, a vegetable garden with the couple tending the garden. I dont need to do a tux / gown. They just called today and the cake is due on Sept 12. I want to start the people today. TIA Cathie

you can make use of moulds, i know PME has people moulds. hope this helps or you can just mould free hand and attach the different pieces together. good luck.
