I need to make a fire engine cake with a ladder leaning on a tier cake.
This is for a wedding in December. The groom witll be on the ladder rescuing the bride sitting on the cake. Thankfully it can be on a styrofoam dummy, using fondant. Question, if anyone has done a cake similar to this,what is the best structure technique, and best way to get a bright red fondant. All suggestions are welcome.

Bright red fondant? That's easy...order it! For my fire truck I used Fondarific. It was VERY bright red.
As to structure....if you're using styrofoam, just cut until you get the shape you want.

I bought it at ICES this summer because I knew I had a fire truck a bulldozer cake coming up. It was very nice to work with and the colors were very bright!
