Ok so have theIdea of a 2 layer Petshop cake for my soon to be 8 year olds bday...I've never worked with fondant but it looks like fun...My question is , would it be good for sculping ?? I'd like to do a littlest petshop horse..Not too big but not as small as the toy itself..Any idea?? Gumpaste perhaps?? Also I'm going to try to have the horsees backend sitting while the front legs are straight...Please any, any tips would be greatly appreciated!!! also how far in advance can I make the horse??? and does it need to be refridgerated?
It's never too soon to make your fondant/gumpaste figures. they don't need to be refrigerated, just keep them in a dry safe place. there are several tutorials here on CC they may not show a horse being sculpted but it can give you some ideas of techniques to use. I know Aine2 has several
Go to Youtube and search fondant, a bunch of videos will come up. There are loads of them for sculpting fondant.
