Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I used fondant and gum paste to make a skier boy. I learned a lot about making a standing figure like you need a lot of patience. Leave yourself time to allow parts to "set up" so the figure will be more stable. Adding the tylose powder or gum paste helps with the whole stability thing as well. Having a good "structure" for the figure also makes a big difference. Plan out what you want it to look like a head of time and make sure you have all the colors and any tools that you will need as well. I feel very good about how he turned out.
