AI'm going to be making an upper body with cake and the head is going to be RKT/MC/Fondant. Before I start this , is there any suggestions or tips for me about attaching the head to the cake body. The body will be about 4-5 layers high. I don't want a headless person.

i'm not thinking of what mc is? all i can think of is master card icon_biggrin.gif


but my biggest idea for you is really pack the h*ll out of the rkt while it is warm


and let them set up overnight


the gelatin needs to do whatever it is that gelatin does


and it takes time to do that


you are making your rkt yes?


but you could cut the torso out of super packed down fresh made but day old rkt too


if i were doing this--i would make the head and neck and arms separate from the trunk


and--i will link you to a breathy post i wrote yesterday about rkt that you can adapt to your endeavor if you want


just some tips in here that might be pertinent


mc = modeling choco  of course!!!

you can smoothify the nubbley texture with a microplan or the 'mc' + fondant could do that too


oh i got this all wrong didn't i--got off on a tangent about what is 'mc' & didn't pay attention




i got it now


it's a cake body and rkt head


use a nice long dowel in the head (ouch) secured firmly all the way into the foam under the bottom board and use board and dowel under the head too


there's still some good tips in the other post
