I have to start out with the fact that I'm a beginner. I've used styrofoam in the past for structures that can not be molded with cake, but find it expensive. I'm makeing a "Bakugan" cake for my son's birthday and am having trouble with the head---
I've made it out of RCT and have dowled it the best I can with the curve of it. I made the rct according to the package. I try to stand it up and it just wants to fall. Am I supposed to dowl/ put different kind of support, change the recipie or prepare it diffrently. Any help would be AWESOME!
So your dowel goes up to the curve, right? And does this same dowel go down through your cake? It should, and should be attached to your board. I did a giraffe in my gallery like that, and the dowel is screwed into the board...it was a 1" dowel.
Here's a good thread about RKT modelling. I had good luck with mamawrobin's RKT recipe (fewer marshmallows and butter to make the RKT stronger) http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-691439.html
Thank you both! I didn't think of screwing the dowl to the board! SOOOOoooo glad you mentioned it!
