I want to make a round 6-inch pound cake decorated like a "M & M character" and have it stand up on a strawberry sheet cake that I'm making for my brother.  I would like the character to have slightly bent "knees" so I'm thinking I'll have to use wire.  I originally just wanted to cover a straw with flesh colored fondant for the arms and legs but there is no way to bend them if I do that.  I'm concerned about the weight of the cake being supported with just small wooden dowels in the legs.  I just make cakes for church and family so I need some help from you all who have more experience.  Thanks.
