In Need of ideas for a "great escape" cake

by Lucy

Hello,
I'm very new to cake making and I need to make a beautiful cake based on the film 'Great Escape'.

if you haven't seen it it's basicly where some guys escape from a prison camp in WW2 by digging out. Any ideas anyone? Or at least some help on making fondant people, or preferably a motorcycle?

From the editor:

Hi Lucy,

For great tutorials when it comes to modeling characters, check out How to Make Clay Characters by Maureen Carlson. Although aimed at clay modeling, the instructions translate beautifully to fondant.

I really think that to make it easy on yourself, you could use a small model motorbike on the cake.

Good luck. Don't forget to come back here and show off your masterpiece.

Regards,
Michelle (editor)
