My daughter just turned 8 yesterday but her party is this Saturday. She has notified me that she wants a Christmas themed cake with a big tree and Santa, ect. We will be having her party at the roller rink and so I have come up with the idea of having a big Christmas tree as the cake on top of a roller rink with little figures skating. I just spent 5 hours building these little guys. What do you think? It is my very first time with fondant figures. I have used water to "stick" the pieces together, but is that strong enough or are my poor little people going to start coming apart as soon as I move them? TIA

Wow, those are great!!! I can't believe they're your first figures, they're just amazing icon_biggrin.gif

I usually use a little tylose and water mixed together to glue fondant or gumpaste, but you can use meringue powder and water if any of the parts come off as you're moving them.

Like Texas_Rose, I use Warm water with a little tylose added for my glue. I think the water will work for you and the figures should be fine. Great job by the way! Very, very cute! Careful though, modeling is addictive! icon_biggrin.gif
