Hi everyone,

Can you guys share any pointers on how to do a mannequin topper such that the dress appears on the stand? something like these


I am planning to attach a small cake board on the dowel rod and then make the everything out of gumpaste over it, will that work?


Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello, I have made a cake similar to that before!  I used a popsicle/cake pop stick and attached gumpaste to it for the dress and then stuck the dowel into the cake!   I used that exact cake for my inspiration!!  :)
