Hello,

I am making a 3D character cake that looks like Stitch (from Lilo & Stitch).  I have the whole thing done except the ears. I need them to stand up on from the side of the face so i can't use a rod in it and stick it straight down in to the cake like bunny  ears. What would be the best way to do this.  I made one ear out of fondant and laid the head down, glued the ear and propped it to dry.  (The other ear cracked so i have to redo it) before i waste anymore fondant and time I thought i would ask for your opinion.  I have thought about using wire however the wire i have does not feel sturdy. 

Please help.


Thank yoU!!!

Perhaps double up on your wire....wrap it around a few times if need be and twist it together for more strength and then cover with fondant.

I'm probably too late but here's my 2cents :)

 If you use wire be sure to dip it in chocolate so it does not actually touch the cake or fondant.

I don't see why a kabob or sucker stick would not work - maybe even a plastic straw.  Just make sure it supports all of the ear.  Uuggg - how to explain what I mean make sure whatever you use is buried from top to bottom of the ear.  You might even have to use 2 across the width of the ear.
