So I'm relatively new to decorating, I've been at it for about a year, and I welcome the chance to try new techniques, however this time I'm scared! I need to take a picture of Betty Boop and turn it into a 3D cake! Yikes! Luckily the girl I'm making it for only needs to serve 12 people and she's fine with me using styrofoam for parts of it, but I'm just not sure how to build this thing! If anyone has any suggestions I'd REEEALLY appreciate it! Thank you!!

oh dear... i think a much easier road would be to make her out of gumpaste and use her as a cake topper instead...

I agree, and I suggested that to her. But she really, really wants the 3D cake...

hmm, well, if you were to go 3d for sure.. i would probably go styrofoam for head legs and arms and body out of cake? mind you im not an expert.. but the just seem to make the most sense to me.. let us know how you go!
