My first man stand cake- modeling chocolate or fondant?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I need to make  panels (about 2 1/2'') hanging off the cake.    What would be the best for this chocolate clay, fondant, or maybe a mixture of both?   I'll be traveling  3.5 hours with it and I'm not sure which one would be the strongest  for traveling, and won't slide down the cake.  Also would you suggest a thin  layer of BC for this or frost as usual?

I can't 'picture' what you mean. Man stand? Panels? Hanging off? Do you have a picture or something you are using as inspiration for this that you can post?

I am also very puzzled.

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Sorry... I'm using the Caljava man stand, my plan is to try making MSU's Sparty  and his skirt has panels.

Ok, thanks. I  had to google all that, but I see it now. Sorry, though, I've never done anything quite like that, so I can't help. Good Luck.

I imagine you can make that yourself for a lot less. How can they sell that without letting you know how tall it is? Or did I just miss that? If you aren't experienced with this sort of thing a 3.5 hour drive might be pushing it.

Oh trust me I thought about making it quite a few times, but I had no idea what the stand actually looked like,  what size it was...ect.  The next time I need to make something like this I now understand what I'll need to put the frame together.

 

So do you have any idea what I might be stronger for the armor and skirt,  fondant or modeling chocolate?  Michigan roads are awful so I need something that will hold up to all the bumps.

 

I did make the face tonight out of modeling chocolate and it looks awesome!  My first time making chocolate and working with it.

I would imagine modelling chocolate . Have a look online at Kaysie Lackey Higgins the butler cake. She uses chocolate for covering him.
