Hi every one icon_smile.gif im brandnew here and very nervous! i was wondering if you could help me with figures, ive made quite a few , but always sitting down, now ive been asked to do a cake with a Standing up figurine , and am not sure how . . . i get him to stand. Hes a dragon ball z character so hes likley to be top heavy, big chest and head! lol. Will i use supports or something, i tried working with spagetti but it kept snapping , any advice would be fantastic

I've only been doing simple figures too but maybe a piece of wire or something like a toothpick would work. Good luck

I've been doing figures for quite a while now. Just place a piece of spaghetti or tooth pick in the legs and body. If you look at my photos, I have a cake with little golfers on it. Hope this helps.
