I am attempting to make some little gilrs for a sleepover cake and wanted to know what is the best product to use? Also, should they be made as one piece or limb by limb and assembled? If assembled, how do I attatch the pieces to each other. Thank you so much for the help.. One last question, if the cake is due friday,when should I make the characters so they have enough time to dry?

I model with a 50/50 mixture of fondant/gumpaste or fondant with some Tylose added to it.

I model limb by limb and attach with some glue that I make by either using a mixture of tylose/water mixed up together or I drop a bit of gumpaste in water, let it dissolve and mix.

If the pieces won't be eaten I use toothpicks to help support the head, limbs etc.

I try to make my figures at least a week ahead of time (depending on size and climate) they dry within a couple of days.
