Thanks everyone. Took a few goes before I got the hang of the moulds ... Just make sure you dust the moulds well with cornflour before you begin each one. I used modelling paste (gum paste?), so it was not too wet. Use a small amount of paste, roll into a ball & push into mould as required. Use only enough to fill the mould (or bit of mould - I used a shirt here, & shorts/dress there & mix & matched). Get your edges neat & then pop them out! A few first attempts were necessary before I mastered it!

Wow Eilers, this is the best celebration cake I've ever seen! You must have spent so much time making the children with all their different outfits. I hope that your playgroup were very grateful! God bless you

This an adorable cake!!!! You did an excellent job! And the kids are GREAT!!! Which sculpting molds are reffering too? Is there a website to buy them?

The children are made with a flexible push mould by a company called Sculpey, I got it from a UK website makeawishcakeshop.co.uk that I found through ebay. I've just noticed on the back of the packet that they have a website www.sculpey.com .. don't know if they sell direct?! The FMM tappits are a set of alphabet cutters, they are widely available in most good cake craft websites. Thank you all for your lovely comments, & thank you for not noticing my lobsided handwriting on the tent!!

Looks great. I just purchased some of the sculpey molds (from Michaels for those of us in the US - in the clay section).. However these molds are giving me fits. I would appreciate any tips you could provide.

Love your cake. It must have taken a good deal of time and patience. I have the molds and little patience to deal with them. Congrats!
