So my sister is doing a luau themed party for her DD's 2nd birthday and she wants an Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Big Bird wearing grass skirts for the cake. I've only done gumpaste figures once (penguins) but they turned out very well and I found them not to be too difficult. I just need some advise for these. How to get the texture of the fur/feathers. With the penguins they were short and squat so them standing wasn't a problem. Should I do a wire form for extra stability with the legs? Any help would be greatly appreciated
