Hello,

I'll be doing a groom's cake similar to this picture of Taz. The only difference is that Taz will have a whirlwind around him at the bottom (like the cartoons). It should be pretty cool. It will be sculpted from rice cereal.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do his arms? Since his arms are so skinny, I'm assuming I'd use some kind of wires and cover them in modeling chocolate, but if you have any other suggestions I'd appreciate your help. Thanks so much!

well, the easy way out, is to have the whirlwind up as high as the elbows and prop them up on that   :grin:

 

otherwise you have to attach that internally--not just wires--wires or pvc pipe attached to structure inside--

AI didn't even think of having to do internal supports for it. Thank you for that suggestion!
