I just got a rush order for a cake for this weekend, and the customer asked for little plastic army men. I would REALLY rather have edible army men. I have never made a mold or anytime for a figure. Can anyone suggest a way to take the little plastic guys and make them out of gumpaste?

I think there is stuff you can get at hobby lobby or michael's (probably in the clay section or something) to make your own molds - you would have to use the plastic army men and make your own molds out of them.

Or you could just hand mold them - but that would take an insane amount of time!

Sculpy has a make your own mold that is super easy to use, you can make mold in mins. I haven't seen it in stores in my area, but it is available online.
