After you've been looking at hundreds of cakes every day for a couple of years, it's hard to find anything that really knocks your socks off, but your cakes do it every time!!!



Those are some pretty kind words and I do really appreciate it.

[quote="Crustymuffin"]I was at home depot yesterday and they have solid copper wire in the Electical department in a like 5 sizes. This is the best stuff to use in the jionts. Drill your hole a little samaller then the copper wire and press it on. You can also Hot glue it after the you have it posed. Just make sure that you wrap the armature in a food safe material after.[/quote]


Could you explain a little more how you attach the segments of dowels together. I think i understand, but i am so curious. Thanks for the great tutorial.

Using a gardening cutting tool, cut the solid copper wire in 1.5 - 2 inch sections.

Drill a hole in the wooden dowel just smaller than the copper wire diameter. Press the wire into hole. Drill a hole into the other dowel and press the exposed end of the copper wire into then hole. The goal is to only have enough exposed wire between the 2 dowels that you need to pose the limbs. That will keep it sturdy.

Look at my Gollum video linked in this thread you will see me do this.

Job well done!
Grandma, I continued with my cakes. All that you taught me I am taking with me as I move forward. I miss you. Everytime I mix my batter please lay your hands on the mixer. Everytime I show my cakes it's "OUR" work on display. I hope I make you proud!

So thankyou so much!!

Well, even if you don't think it was the coolest (although all decorators tend to underestimate their talents!), post a photo anyway and let us see it, Rauty!
