hi fellow cakers...
Am in a fix. I accepted an order for a 3 tier wedding cake with a cake topper. The cake is colorful since it's an Indian wedding. However, the bride and groom have requested a cake topper where the bride is wearing her traditional Korean outfit and the groom topper is wearing his Indian outfit. I have about 25 days to go and am clueless.
Any ideas and DVD u know I can purchase online or any tutorials will be of great help.
Thanks in advance

All I can say is Youtube! or google polymer clay figurines. The technique is the same if you're working with clay, gumpaste, fondant, etc.
There is a lot out there for clay figures since it used to be so popular.
Hope this helps.

Check out Lorraine McKay's website, She has examples (but sadly no tutorial) of an Indian bride and groom. You could buy one of her other tutorials and then perhaps figure out the clothing from there. Good luck.

The best tutorials for figures can be purchased, very reasonably, here:
