Help!!! Fist of Rock cake - Page 2

post #16 of 19
I always use store bought RKT, room temp. the ones individually wrapped then I just press them together. I believe I did used 2 cut pieces of lollipop sticks in the the fingers but no frame. Yes, it was life size. I didn't really get much detail in the RKT, as much as possible but it's hard to do. I make the modeling chocolate and I just used one batch. I got the recipe from here...

I make alot of the things that go on top of my cakes with RKT and modeling chocolate....it's so easy and fairly light. Hope this helps!

Ok! So this evening I have done the moulding, I hope I have gone for enough detail but not too much, as I intend to do the finer stuff with the outer icing coat. I feel confident that the structure (glued) is strong enough, I didn't feel any wobble or flex while I was moulding onto it.

Tomorrow eve I will cover in royal icing and then Friday (down to the wire!) I will cover in fondant or sugar dough or MMP, not sure yet I have all 3... probably sugar paste actually as the structure is there and it will give me more time to work before it dries.

The wrist is slightly moving down the support as it sets but I'm hoping I'm not going to find it all in a slithered messy heap tomorrow morning :/

Couple of pics attached, what do you think? Ok for the RKT base? (oh and I'm surprised at how 'flesh' coloured RKT is!!) I don't think I've left enough gap between the fingers etc to allow for the fondant but it's too late now, it'll just have to be a bit chubby!!

OK, covered! Not perfect but ok for a first attempt. It's SO heavy though, if it stays upright in the cake I will be happy... eek...

I'll post pics in my gallery of the completed cake on the weekend, here are ones of the hand:
