I've got a golf course birthday cake next week. The birthday boy loves golf and is a fireman so the wife wanted a fireman playing golf made out of fondant. I just finished him - sort of. All the pieces are done, I just need to attach the arm when they dry. I didn't wire them, and I probably should have... any suggestions? I just tried to carefully insert wires, but then I couldn't bend the arm back to the shape I needed. Oh well - fingers crossed at this point!
Thanks for looking!
Your pieces are looking great! Love the golf bag. In the future you might want to try attaching the arms while the fondant/gumpaste is still fresh. Just use a little edible glue to attach the arms to the body and use foam to hold the pieces in position until they dry. I never use toothpicks or wires in the arms.
