Ok, I have been asked to make a divorce cake for a friend and I am in need of the best tutorial/book on how to make people. I'm pretty good at being able to see something and re-create it, but don't want to take the chance on this one. I really want to create a cupie looking girl.......Any suggestions?

I also recommend Lorraine--I had never made any people and bought two of her tutorials--the boy with the dog and the girl sitting reading a book. Those two gave me so many options and I was able to make all of the toppers in my pics based on making a few changes to those.

Good luck!
