I am looking to make a POLO cake this week, but I am not sure how I go about constructing the collar using fondant. I bought a 10 x 2 square pan for the foundation, it's just the collar I am not to sure about. Help please :)

I haven't tried this myself, however I saw a photo where saran plastic wrap was wound up into a thick rope and curled into a semi circle, then the fondant collar was put over it and shaped for drying.  Can't remember where it was on the internet or I'd send you there for a look.

Thanks. I have seen that one... still looking around for more ideas. I did save that image though.

I realize this is a bit different kind of collar but am happy to explain how I did this one:


I used a mix of gumpaste fondant so it would hold shape.


I looked around the kitchen until I found something the right size.  For me, it ended up being a small container of fondant.  I wrapped the fondant around the side and brought in front and placed it exactly how I wanted it to look.

Here's an exceptional tutorial at a VERY reasonable price:

I have it and LOVE it.


Here's another's for a dress shirt, but you may find the way they pieced the cake together helpful...I'm not sure:
