3D Croc/Aligater head....saw a YouTube video....How to keep mouth open?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I have an order for a 3D Alligater/croc head...The shape isn't hard to do but I saw this tutorial on youtube and it looked to be a class and she showed how to carve the entire body and head but what really intriged me was the (students and instructor) all used a piece of cut cardboard shaped like the mouth and bent open like a big V..I watched the whole video but it jumped right to the end where the body/head was entirely covered by fondant but it didn't show how the mouth was covered..not sure if there was even cake on it and how would it hold open...

 

Does anyone know how to do this?...I would like the mouth open but don't want it to collapse under the weight of the fondant...any ideas/tips or anyone who has actually made one?

 

 

Thanks :-)

Seems to me you'd need something more substantial than cardboard, to line the mouth.

 

Any chance you could have something made out of food-safe sheet metal?
