If I make elmo ahead of time....can I put a dowel thru him and into the cake later, or do I need to insert dowel ahead of time and allow for part going into cake, I hope this makes sense

It definitely makes sense. icon_lol.gif

I'd put the dowel into him before hand so that you don't mess him up trying to get one in after the fact.

I usually use a large block of styro foam covered in plastic to stick the figure into while I'm working on it.

Now I hope THAT makes sense. icon_razz.gif

ITA with Deb, stick Elmo sooner so you don't break him later. And just like Deb I stick my figurine into a block too so I can work on it from any direction and not messing up the opposite side.
