I'm available on Craftsy to answer all your questions regarding my Cake Topper Techniques: Figure Modeling class.
Here are some of the common questions:
Q. Okay so now that I've created my figure how can I store it for safe keeping and how long can I store it?
Q. Can i work with modelling chocolate instead of gumpaste?, kids always love to eat the sugar figurines, and gumpaste dries hard?
Q. I notice that sometimes you use water and other times you use shortening for your gum paste figures. How do you know when to use which one or does it matter, is it just a personal preference or do they serve different purposes?
Q. Do you normally make all your figures on styrofoam cake dummies? If so, how do you remove them to place them on your cake without breaking them?
Q. How do I prevent my gumpaste from 1. looking so dry and 2. cracking. Thanks! I really have enjoyed this class.
Q. What is the best to use fondant, 50/50, gumpaste or modeling chocolate for making figurines? I need to make a cake topper figurine Little Mermaid.
Q. Hi! I need to make the male standing figure, when should I put the pants and how and how do I make the shirt? Thank you!!
