Hello fellow cakers,
I have been asked to create a replica of a guitar. The recipients wish to keep eat after the event therefore they don't want it to be made of cake.
I know that cake dummies can be covered with fondant icing, so I was thinking that a polystyrene sheet could be used. When I looked into it, there are all sorts of grades of polystyrene and I don't know which I should be looking for!
Then I wondered if a foam sheet would be better.
What would be the easiest to shape? I think the depth is going to be the most challenging as the polystyrene sheets only seem to come in either 10mm or 25mm deep (or more)
Also, should I used buttercream icing under the fondant to eliminate the bumps and help the fondant stick, or is there something else I could use, bearing in mind this is just going to be a model and not for eating.
Thank you for any advice!!
