I'm new to this site, please excuse me if I'm asking this question in the wrong place.

I have to make a mindcraft cake with a sword sticking out of the top. (Like the one below). I don't know how to make the sword so it will stay standing up in the cake. I tried fondant with tyo powder but that didn't work and after doing some research on the internet I discovered Partillage and was wondering if this would work? Has anybody got any ideas how I could do this?

I'm new to cake decorating too, only been doing it in the past couple of months, but am loving it. 

Thanks for your help in advance.

From what I understand, pastillage is meant to dry rock-hard.  Of course, so is gumpaste.  Have you considered covering a cardboard or firm plastic form with fondant and letting it dry that way?
