I am in the process of making a cake with Garfield jumping out of the cake. I started to make him with RKT. I fought with the fondant to get everything covered with all the odd shapes i had. Then started to put it together and came to the arms. We have a heavy gauge wire for support but when we put them in it keeps falling down. What can i do or how would you make a garfield to jump out of a 10in cake?

Any help would be great!

I would try to secure a heavy wire or bamboo skewer through the body so that it sticks out on each side where the arms should be, then try to anchor the arms to that. I never use RKT - I just use modeling chocolate. Fewer steps, better results...
