I want to make my grandfather a bowling green cake for his birthday and the picture on the internet I have found has a fondant man kneeling on one knee with his other at a 90 degree angle, having now had a play I realise I system of cocktail sticks is required. However I can't seem to stop him falling backwards or sideways, please help! I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post the image as it's not mine so I hope the description makes sense.
Run one skewer from the planted knee right up to the same side shoulder. This should be enough to stabilize him, if not angle a shorter skewer from the heel of the front foot to the knee. Once you have the right position, dry him overnight on his side, well supported.
Thanks that sounds great thank you!
