I have a cake to make for a cast party next week [short notice, I know] for 30+ servings and covered with fondant, I need to find out how to make the legs, plus what would you charge per serving if you were going to charge them. My cousin's son is in the play"metamorphosis"[sp] I am in the process of starting a business [Haven't gotten that far yet, though. Just for reference.]
TIA

so do I make the legs from fondant/gumpaste mixture? I am going to cover the cake with MMF. I have been trying to find some other pictures to go by too. So if you know where I can find any that would be appreciated. Thanks

Thanks for all of the ideas everyone, We used some chocolate candy corn and melted it mixed with some of the chocolate fondant and formed the legs. My dd did all of the actual =decorating and designing of it. I think she did an awesome job. I made the fondant and baked the cakes.
