I Have to make a full size skateboard grooms cake. Any idea's on how to give it a cool 3-d look. And Do you think it would be the best technique to make The board part out of gumpaste and let it dry?

Yes, upside down in definitely the way to go. If you do it right side up, you probably have to make a wooden support. Unless you like woodwork and dont want it all edible....do the board out of cake and the wheels, hardward etc.. out of gumpaste (better yet fondant with gumtex powder). I learned a lot of what not to do when I made mine (in my photos), so PM me if you want.

I might be too late but I found the best way to make a skate board.... I went to Walmart and found the cheapest real board they had. I wrapped it in plastic wap and built my cake on the skateboard. IT was so easy. THe hardest part was making the wheel not move while i decorated. I wraped towels around the wheels. Hope this helps. I hope the link to my picture works.
