I'm making my friend's 40th birthday cake and I'm making a fondant figurine cake topper of her on top of the cake. I'd love to have her holding a champagne glass, but have no clue as to how to make it look somewhat realistic.
I have never worked with isomalt, but would give it a try - can I mold a small glass out of the isomalt or do I have to have a tiny mold (unlikely that I would find it).
I wouldn't even bother trying - I would go to a Dollhouse Furniture Supplier or craft store and BUY one!
Does it really matter THAT much if it is the ONLY inedible thing on your cake?
