Hello, cc friends!!!! icon_biggrin.gif
I need some help. I am planning in carving a throne out of a 5" by 4"high cake, this will be set on a 8" round cake for my mothers cake on sunday.
I have read some of the posts about carving
1.- put in freezer for a little time to make it easier to carve
2.-use a med size knife or small to carve
3.-look at the process of carving from different angles
4.-cover in buttercream
5.-cover with fondant and decorate

is there anything else I should know? icon_smile.gif
I will be making a figure of my mother sitting on the throne, and maybe figures of us on the bottom cake with some flowers.

I thank you in advance for your help.

Just don't forget to support the throne on your round properly. Other than that...go for it!!! And please do post pics when you're done.

Hi Jobueno icon_smile.gif
I have gone tru 4 Wilton classes and I still have not use any supports, because we did not use it in class, so I am afraid to insert anything in the cakes. I figure if it is a small cake it will not affect too much.
But maybe is time to start, so I will use 4?? of those "dowel" sticks. icon_confused.gif
Thank you for the suggestion icon_smile.gif !
I will post picture as soon as is done!
