For a bachelor party this weekend, my friends have asked me to do a cake like this:
(It's a Starcraft Protoss probe, if anyone is familar with it)

They said it would be fine to do a top down, 2d version, but I feel like it would come out looking funny like that. So I'd really like to do a 3d model of it, but am not sure how to approach it. The main body would just be a 9 inch round, which is easy. But for all the little 'arms'... could I just cut them out of fondant ahead of time, then attach with toothpicks to the body? Any better ideas?

A big thanks!!

the 3d would be cute. You could make the arms out of Rice Crispy Treats cover in fondant and attach with dowel rod so they could be eaten. hth

much better picture (looks to be a cardboard model)


main body cake on a board - use a wood one so you can easily...

attach dowels for all the leg parts

then cover dowel in RKT and then on to the fondant or BC
