I've been asked to make a Yoshi themed birthday cake for someone and, although I'm not that experienced with making decorations I do like to have a go at figuring out how to make things when people ask me.

So I've made a little Yoshi out of rice Krispie squares moulded together - my first time using them, and my second go at making a shape that looks acceptable. See links below.

My problem is that I've made the whole thing in one go (apart from putting the arms on) so I'm now faced with an awkward shape to cover in fondant icon_cry.gif I figure I'll probably have to cover it piece by piece as opposed to all in one go, but I'd like to cover it as neatly as possible.

Anyone out there with any useful tips?? Please? All advice welcome!

I'd use modelling chocolate instead of fondant as it is easier to smooth out the seams.
