Hello,

I am making a Stitch cake like this one, and need a little help with the structure. I would like to make the arms open like this, but don't know how to do it without the risk of them falling off. I'm a little baffled by the head as well. I PM'd the creator (thank you kitagirl). She used a wooden dowel as the main support. I will be doing mine in buttercream....I think. Thank you for any suggestions you might have.

I would try making the arms out of Rice Krispy treats or gumpaste/fondant mix, depending on how big you need them to be. I would attach them with a skewer or dowel depending. The head you could either make out of cake or Rice Krispy treats. Those are my suggestions, hope they help!

PVC frame... wrap it in saran wrap before applying cake. RKT for arms and head.

Thank you both for your replies. I was thinking of a PVC frame. I am a little unsure of how I would secure the head (would like to do it in cake, but may have less worry/stress if I do RKT).

Thanks,
Brooke
