Craftsy has a bobble head course on their site but you do have to pay for it.

I just looked at that course and it said they show you how to sculpt the head but not how to make it move :( they just give tips to try on your own. So im still looking. Thank you for trying.

I've bought that class but I haven't watched it yet. If they don't show you how to make the head move I'm going to be mad, that's the only thing I'd be interested inicon_evil.gif

 

If I had to do it on my own, I'd do a wedge like this just to have to go back and forth http://www.robives.com/blog/paper_pop_development_stage_1

 

Make the wedge that goes into the cake body out of plastic and then make another section that goes into a section that fits into the head, which I'd make out of rice krspies. There has to be some kind of ball valve or something like that that you can get at the hardware store to use to make it bob in a rounded shape.

I have not watched the course yet either I just read the description they give you. But it says:

 

"No, the head won't actually bobble if you make the cake Mike's way, but he'll give you tips on how you can try it yourself."

 

So Im going to watch it and see if the tips are good. I hope so. Thanks for the link, that at least gives me some ideas when I go to the hardware store.

Can you let us know what you think of the class after you have watched it.  It is a new one so I haven't bought it yet as I generally wait until they are on special.  Would be good to know what it is like before investing.  Thanks.

I've been doing reviews of the classes for the last couple of months on my blog, www.acaketorememebrva.blogspot.com. I'll watch the bobblehead one and give it a scathing review if the cake doesn't bobble. What's the point of that?

SHould be www.acaketorememberva.blogspot.com.

 

I watched the first part of the class and he basically tells you that to make it bobble it will be too much work. Pfffft. I'll watch the rest but it's buffering weird and it's not streaming smoothly. I'll try it another day.

I got one from the bobblehead store www.bobbles.com.au for my husbunds birthday. I was great. I think you can ask them for some tips of making one by your own.
