I apologize if this is answered somewhere on the boards, but I am having a very hard time with this site. I keep getting error messages and blank pages when I search. I need a bit of advice on making a ship for the top of a cake. I'm going to use a store bought pound cake because that is much easier to carve and it will need to sit out for several days while covered in fondant. My question lies in having it sit out for a while. I know the cake and the fondant will be fine, but what would be best to adhere the fondant to the cake? I don't know of any frosting recipe that could sit out for more that a day or two. Can someone recommend the best way to do this? Actually I could use any advie about making a ship period. I'm very nervous about this. Its the first time I have had to make a large 3d object as I've only done figures before. Thanks

You could use one of the crusting buttercream recipes on this site. They can sit out for more than a day or two.

Either use Indydebi' s BC or Sugarshack's- they can sit out...
