A friend of mine would like a boob cake with a thick torso (to the belly button) would you just do 2 heart shaped stacked for body?

When I use the heart pan, I trim the sides off to make more of a body shape. I use two cakes stacked for the torso. You can look in my photos at the cake with the black corset to see the shape I'm talking about. If your cake is dense then you can manage without boards and dowels under the boobs.

Thanks Texas Rose..I posted my "try" in my photos. It has a long way to go from being as amazing as yours! (fondant hates me!)

It came out great!

When I did mine, the fondant was giving me a really hard time too...I actually had to put the fondant on in sections. That's how I ended up with the red piping, to cover up the seams. And the pearl necklace at the top was to cover up a wrinkle icon_biggrin.gif even though they thought I added it as a naughty joke.

Be patient with yourself! There's plenty of time to learn everything you want to do.

I usually chill my cakes before I cover them, so that if I need to move the fondant a little to get it just right it doesn't disturb the frosting underneath.

There are just some days when fondant won't cooperate...I haven't figured out how to fix that, just how to work around it.
