Wheel wells and running board out of fondant?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My daughter and I are working on an antique car cake and need to make flared wheel wells and a running board. The length will be about 15 inches. I only have fondant to work with and am worried it won't harden up enough, I don't want it to sag. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for your advice Chellescakes.....I was afraid someone was going to say that. I live in a small town where it's impossible to get tylose or Gum-Tex or tragacanth. I have friends from the city who are hunting those things down for me, but in the meanwhile, we have to get this cake done in the next 2 days. I suppose I could insert wire into the fondant?
