I need to make a cake of Jack Skellington's head for my daughters 15th birthday this weekend and I'm stressing. I know how to use fondant but not sure how to get the ridges around his eyes and nose? Also, is it easier to use black fondant for his eyes and nose or should I paint it? Any suggestions will help greatly I'm not usually so unsure but I want to make sure this comes out good and not mess up the white fondant:/
I made a Yoda cake last year, and what I did for his ridges was to make the ridges where they should be under the layer of fondant that would be his skin. Just make little ropes of fondant and place them around his eyes, then when you add the white fondant as his skin, smooth it around the ropes you previously put down.
I would probably use black fondant, but that's more to do with the fact that I have shaky hands and painting doesn't usually work out for me.
