I'm making a world cake with a modeling chocolate figuring sitting on top. A few of the questions I've wondered about are:

1. I did the water test, and it came out to equivalent to 8" heart shaped pan, should I have supports for the top half of the world?

2. How should I attach the figure? Will butter cream work?

3. Side question, how can I smooth over some of the cracks in the figure?

Thanks so much!!!!

Hi,

Yes, you will need to add supports to your cake especially if your adding a figure to the top of it. You want it to be able to withstand the weight of your figure.

I would use either royal icing or melted chocolate to attach to our cake. They work like a charm and yr figure will not move once its on.

Warm hands will smooth out any of your cracks. You just have to work at getting it smooth to your liking icon_smile.gif
