Well I did some clay modelling back at school and have never been able to try it again as much as I'm eager to and thought this would be a good opportunity to flex those muscles.
I've never worked with cake before and I'm pretty chuffed how it turned out. Apart from learning how heavy the icing is - hence the "supports" for his arms, everything turned out as much as well as I'd hoped. It took me 5 hours believe it or not and by 2am I was passing out and so the smashed concrete was a bit rushed.
Has anyone done anything like this before? Me and my wife have become a little hooked and are looking at doing this a few more times and maybe moving it onto being a paid hobby.
