Q&A with cary.gran1266996

ACupcakeToRemem asked:
Cary great job with this!!! I'm using Mikes structure to make a cartoonish alligator holding some cupcakes but can't figure out how to work the open mouth. I know that was one of your questions to Mike but I don't quite understand his response. Any advice.?
cary.gran1266996 answered:
Sorry for the late response. I hope I'm not to late for you. I drilled 2 holes through the doweling to tread the wire through to form the top part of the mouth. For the bottom part I attached the wire were I wanted it to open from. I molded the head with tin foil to give it a round shape. Covered it all with chocolate clay then fondant over top.
