Please help... I am doing 2 figures in fondant for the top of a cake I am making and I need them to spin slowly. Like they are dancing. They will not be heavy like a cake so I don't have that problem but I can not figure out what I need to buy to make them spin/rotate. Can anyone help?

I used the rotating lighted base for a carousel cake. (had to order it on line) Wilton makes it. $20.00
Ive also heard of people using a motor out of a disco ball, but good luck with the cord.
You could also use the base from one of those crystal paper weight things that people put on they're desks.
Hope this helps.

You would be surprised at the things you'll find at WalMart in the toy section. Sometimes, you can even find things like that in the toy section of CVS, Target, and RiteAid. Good luck! Keep us updated. thumbs_up.gif

Look up the Ace of Cakes episode where he built a lighthouse - talked all about what was needed to make it work. I think it's in either season 2 or 3
