I need to makeÂ panels (about 2 1/2'')Â hangingÂ offÂ the cake.Â Â Â Â What would be the best for this chocolate clay, fondant, or maybe a mixture of both?Â Â I'll be travelingÂ 3.5 hours with it and I'm not sure which one would be the strongestÂ Â for traveling, and won't slide down the cake.Â Also would you suggest a thinÂ layer of BC for this or frost as usual?
I can't 'picture' what you mean. Man stand? Panels? Hanging off? Do you have a picture or something you are using as inspiration for this that you can post?
I am also very puzzled.
Sorry... I'm using the Caljava man stand, my plan is to try makingÂ MSU's Sparty Â and his skirt has panels.
Ok, thanks. IÂ had to google all that, but I see it now. Sorry, though, I've never done anything quite like that, soÂ I can't help. Good Luck.
I imagine you can make that yourself for a lot less. How can they sell that without letting you know how tall it is? Or did I just miss that? If you aren't experienced with this sort of thing a 3.5 hour drive might be pushing it.
Oh trust me I thought about making it quite a few times, but I had no idea whatÂ the standÂ actually looked like, Â what size it was...ect.Â The next time I need to make something like this I now understand what I'll need to put the frame together.
So do you have any idea what I might be stronger for theÂ armor and skirt, Â fondant or modeling chocolate?Â Michigan roads are awful so I need something that will hold up to all the bumps.
I did make the face tonight out of modeling chocolate and it looks awesome!Â My first time making chocolateÂ and working with it.
AI would imagine modelling chocolate . Have a look online at Kaysie Lackey Higgins the butler cake. She uses chocolate for covering him.
AMan stand!!!!!??? Is that like a boner?
Whew... I finally finished Sparty,Â I think he turned out fantastic!Â Wish me lot's of luck transporting him!Â :)
Post a picture!
AWow! How big is that??
AThank you everyone, Its 3 ft. tall. I used RKT for the arms and legs then coverd with moldeling chocolate. The body is cake covered with fondant. Since we were traveling so far I knew the head wouldn't make it so carved styrofoam. This was my first time working with chocolate an doing a standing cake.
