Hello everyone!

Doing my firtst carved/3D cake. It's a sailboat, so I'm wondering should i make the front, pointy section only out of rice krispy treats and carve the rest out of cake?

I'm afraid that when I cover the cake, the fondant will be too heavy and
"crush" that pointy little tip?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I think your idea of making the prow out of RKTs is a good one. It will be much sturdier than the cake you're covering, but you'll need to do something to keep it from moving around. Besides sticking the RKT figure to the cake with RI or buttercream or something like that, I'd put a longish dowel into the RKT and run it, more or less horizontally into the cake. That should hold it in place while you cover it. Good luck with your cake - it sounds like a cool idea!
