Any ideas how the head of this unicorn would be supported? Would it be cake or would it be fondant joined to the cake?
Not sure. but Heather Sherman who I believe created this cake has a fb page...maybe she would share with you, or has a tutorial....
More then likely it is either rice Krispy treats or Styrofoam. Fondant would be way too heavy and cake wouldn't stay up like that unless you have some kind of support.
AThanks so much you two! Heather actually has commented on her page how she did the cake and yes, rice Krispy treats for the head and wings. Messaged her also and she said she is going to do a tutorial some day. Very lovely and helpful person :) thanks again!
