I have someone who wants a standing (stay puft) marshmallow man cake, she doesn't want it to be that big as it is only for one person. How small can I make this cake without it being too small to actually work? Should I do rkt for the legs? Not sure how to execute this.... Any ideas would be very appreciated! Thanks!

i would do RKT for the legs ( with supports inside) and for the arms. The i would use 6" rounds for the body and carve it..... hope that helps

BE SURE TO CHARGE HER for all the work and time and ingredients... even if it is only for one person.

Unless it is a gift.

You could use cupcakes and mini cupcakes, chopsticks for supports down into the stand.
For one person it really makes more sense (to me) to make him out of marshmallows on top of a small cake.

I asked her if she wanted a cake with him on top, but she wants just the stay puft guy and him standing up. Now I am not sure how to attach him to the cake board.....

Do I try to attach the dowels to something and then attach that thing to the board? I am excited to do this cake, just worried about how to make him stand up...

There's a CCer named leightorres who did a cute Stay Puft out of fondant:

If you wanted to do legs out of cake, what if you carved a circle down to a figure-8 type shape to look like two fat legs together like in this fondant one? Rather than two circles for separate legs?

He is a cute oneicon_smile.gif I could do that.. But how do I make him stand? All by himself on a cake board... Screw the dowels to the board? I feel like if all that was holding him up was two screws, he will just tip over?? Auuugghghg!
