This is my method on how i do my standing model’s, I like to assemble them straight onto the cake as i find it more stable.
The legs are tyloed fondant i usually use a little wire to tie them at the top so they stay together if the body is a lot bigger, on thinner models i would’nt. the main body is modelling chocolate covered with fondant and handpainted .
This was the finished model
The same method can be used to do these as well
Any question’s please do ask :)
