So I was asked to sculpt a cake topper of a motorbike loving couple for their Wedding Cake.

 They had a toy model motorbike and wanted to be sculpted onto the bike. This was a new challenge for me, as I had never had to incorporate any other material into a cake topper before (part from materials veils or wire glasses)

 Also - because I couldnt 'cook' the plastic motorbike in the oven along with the polymer topper - it had to be able to be pulled apart.

  So I ended up making an alfoil Motorbike to the same dimensions as the model bike - and sculpting them onto that. I had to make sure the hands and feet were position properly so that when cooked - it sat on the bike holding the handle bars, and feet on the feet holds.

Here it is :





and this is what it looks like apart



 It was a nice little challenge for me but worked out really well Smiley
