I want to do 3D elephant cake for an upcoming order. My issue is the support structure.. I've reached out to 3 different people on here who have done the type of cake I want with no reply. if anyone can assist me with how to create a support structure, it would be greatly appreciated.
I would say to build sort of a table on your board w/dowels or pipes that screw into the board. The body of the elephant is the cake which goes on the table top and the 4 supports are the legs which you can cover in rkt and fondant or mc. You would also need something to build up the underbelly a bit like rkt.
Of course, an easier way would be to make the elephant lying down.
Hope that makes sense...
This is the fourth time that I try to leave you a comment.... it doesn't let me comment... I don't know why...
I don't know if what you want to do is similar to what I did... but I can send you a photo of the struture of my elephant.
Send me your email, because I can't post the photo here...it doesn't let me....

Oh good, Ana! A pic is worth a thousand words. How'd I do? Was I close?
Thanks kind of what I was thinking, Jinkies. My 'construction' skills aren't the best. I will have to ask hubby. Thanks!
Oh that would be great Ana. My email is email@example.com
You did great Jinkies. Exactly like that. ;)
I will email you Cheryl.
