How would I make a 3 dimensional set of open hands coming out of a round cake holding a little boy figure. I want it to represent a boy being held in the palms of God's hands. It is my idea of a first communion cake that is unique and less traditional. Would I make the hands out of rice krispie treats and cover in fondant? I've searched the internet and found no life sized molds for food that are 3 dimensional. There are plaster molds but that would be expensive and heavy. Any ideas??? I'm sure Duff could do it!

No idea if this would work as I've never tried it but could you fill a latex glove with either rice krispy treats or chocolate and cut the glove away once it has set?

Maybe a powder free vinyl glove would work. It might be worth trying. Thanks!

What about making your own molds?

Hi!! I wish I had a picture of a cake I did for a Bible class. We had to do a summary of the Old Test. and I did mine in cake. The first scene was a gumpaste/fondant hand (I only did one) with the earth resting on the fingers. I did a mold of my own hand and colored the gumpaste/fondant flesh color.

Because I had the hand fingers down and wrist up with just a slight curl in the finger tips the hand rested well on the cake and just needed a small about of support at the back on the hand.

I used food safe silicone to make the mold. Like ngfcake mentioned.
