I am trying to make a storybook cake. Kind of like the one below but with "cars" and Cinderella . I am having a hard time figuring out how to make the characters not totally flat but kind of 3D but still lying down. I am having an especially hard time with Cinderella. Any ideas?
I searched the web, but most of the cinderella cakes have 3D figures or are edible images.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks
Dina

his might be stating the obvious...or perhaps its just my take on things - but wouldn't you just make them 3D but with a flat back.... as in thr ones in the link you showed.

Perhaps you could pm the person who made that cake and ask...

Are you speaking of something like bas relief? I know I saw a video how-to once, if I can find it....

ETA - try yummy arts but I saw one for free someplace

In case the link is removed, google bas relief and fondant and several blogs come up.
