So this is going to be a mermaid, and I'm getting concerned about how to fondant it. If it were wearing clothes I could just piece it at the seams, but mermaids don't were clothes. Mostly concern about the lower body at this point. I can sort of seam the top...bathing suit straps etc.

The lower body portion is going to be teal green, the upper tummy flesh, bra a different color, and the shoulders and arms flesh. Any ideas? TIA

Seen as its a mermaid, I would problies go a head and cover the bottom in a few different sheets of fondant, And then add half circles over the top to make scales icon_smile.gif

Sheets like horizontal or vertical? I was going to do the half circles, but I didn't even think about the fact that they might cover some seems. Thank you.

How about some seaweed? A few bits could be draped over the more obvious seems?
A lot of people have success with watering down the fondantto hidethe seems as well.
This looks like one almighty cake!

tinygoose your cake is allsome how did you get the plates to hold the cake on the pvc pipe?

Thanks so much everyone!! The plate sits on top of the connector, I wasn't sure it would work, and if the cake were any wider, I probably would have had to figure out a plan two.
