I'm doing an ice skating cake and I'm topping the cake with a thin sheet of isomalt to mimic the ice. On top of that I'm adding two dimensional gumpaste ice skates. Now, normally I would just back the ice skates with skewers or lollipop sticks that I would insert into the cake to keep the skates upright. With the isomalt, that won't be an option. Any recommendations for keeping a fairly tall two dimensional figure upright without inserting into the cake? TIA!
Not having worked with Isomalt before; I'll add my suggestions. I am assuming that the ice skates will have the blades. Could you not place the skates with the blades stuck into the isomalt ice just after it's poured and before it sets. Could you possibly pour a couple of isomalt "sticks" to adhere to the skates in place of the skewers? Just my thoughts. Hope you can use this info.
That's a good idea! Maybe I could place a couple of lollipop sticks into the isomalt before it hardens and then attach the ice skates to them. Thanks for the advice, yellowdog!
