okay so I want to make "people" figures for my cake for the fair, btu I have never done that before. Any pointers? I also want some to walk, some to kneel, some to sit, etc. Are there any tutorials to show me how?

Search for "fondant figures" on YouTube. I found quite a few video demonstrations.

I'd definitely check out aine2 website. She also has over 20 youtube videos that might give you some ideas as well (although I don't think she has people on there though but you can still get some great ideas and tips from her youtube videos).
