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.
