1. Preparation – I always use several pieces of polystyrene. This is how I achieve that the model has inside’s wooden stick long enough to be stable on a cake and also I do not damage hours of attempt when I want to move it from polystyrene to a cake. It is easier to move several layers from the bottom and then the topper.
I hope other pictures are so obvious they do not need other comments. If so, do not hesitate to ask.
The light is not the best, but I am always modeling in late hours and taking pictures at this time is a big misery.
