I have been asked to do a Radio Flyer Cart cake with the little wooden side supports on top. Initially I was thinking that I would use pastillage for the wooden bits but then I thought that maybe gingerbread would work.
The "wooden" sticks would have to be burrowed into the cake so it would stand up. Would gingerbread soften too much and break?
Can you suggest the best material and any tips for making sure the structure stays on top of the cake?

I have been waiting to post a response to you question because I just experimented with gingerbread this weekend I made a Fenway Park cake and used gingerbread as the brick walls. It worked AMAZING! I was worried that it would get soggy but didn't at all. I used a recipe that you would use for a Gingerbread house....not the cookies. I hope this helps!
That is great to know!
