Hi! I joined this site just to ask this question, so I hope someone can help me out. My 3 year old saw this cake and has her heart set on it for her party, so I'm going to attempt it. I've covered cakes in fondant, but I've never worked with anything 3-dimensional.
How should I make the lanterns? Do I do them with fondant and let it dry before gluing them? How do you dry fondant? Do I need to stick them in really well? Let me know what you'd recommend. I'm planning on doing the purple and blue layers with MMF, and then doing the lanterns with Duff. Any advice would be appreciated! Not just on the lanterns, but on anything at all. I'm sure you all have more experience than me. :) Thank you, you talented people, you!
