I need to make a cake topper of a deer head for a grooms cake. I don't know which medium would be best, fondant. gumpaste, modeling chocolate or cold porcelain. I've tried modeling chocolate. I have to keep putting it back in frig to cool down because it gets too soft, and I'm getting very frustrated.
how big does it have to be? did you try RKT under your modeling chocolate?
No I haven't because I didn't know if it would be strong enough to hold the antlers up.
I guess it will be about 4" tall. I have to put the buck and doe on top of 6" top tier.
Don't know what kind of climate you are in but if melting is an issue at your house/bakery - then it would likely also be an issue at the venue. Use gumpaste. You can make a roughly shaped piece (a little smaller) and let that dry then cover it with another layer, making it perfect without worrying about drooping.
Thank you, I will try that. I post picture when I get done.
