I was wondering if anyone can give me some tips, ideas etc. I am trying to make a lion, giraffe and elepant for a childrens birthday cake similar to the ones on the 2010 Wilton yearbook. Is fondant, gumpaste or a mixture of each better to work with? Also, what I have played around with so far, it seems hard to get the balls of fondant to stay smooth without any cracks or marks when you are rolling them for the bodies or heads. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
