I would think it is a metal rod going down through the cake and under the skirt would be a board to hold the bubble of the dress and the carved body shape.

The dress could also possibly be made out of RKT.

I made a mannequin cake, but mine wasn’t standing like that. I am thinking like the post above the dress in RCT, the bodice is fondant/gumpaste with a metal rod going through it. You know, you could send a message to the person who made the cake. She might share how she did it. I have done that, and they are flattered. Done it twice and both times they told me how.
Good luck. :o)

Slice of Sweet Art ...

In the comments of the original cake pic, the original cake artist states “The skirt is two round 8 × 3” and the torso is RKT. The bottom cakes are 14 x3" and 12 × 3″."

With that comment in mind, I believe there is some sort of support structure used to hold up the dress . . . I would imagine there’s either a wood or metal plate attached to the rod that supports the cake & RKT used for the skirt & torso. In other words, it appears now is the time to brush up on either your carpenter or welding skills. ;-)

Hope that helps.

Karen de Perez ...

So could someone explain to me what RKT is? Please…… thanks…..:) Kx

RKT is rice krispy treats :) It lesses the weight of what you’re making instead of using solid fondant or gumpaste.

@Intan – if I was going to paint an image on a cake I would use the technique of piping the outline and using a flat brush to drawn the icing line inwards. It is called brush embroidery in UK. But this technique will give a nice outline to start with. I would also find an excellent pic of a peacock from the internet to copy. Build up the areas where edges are required and then draw the coloured icing inwards. I would just look at the pic and see what colours are in the peacock and make piping icing in about five of the most obvious colours. Use a scriber or sharp point to trace the outline onto the cake. You can always paint with a paint brush over the top of the brush embroidery. Hope that helps…..:) Kx PS this is assuming that you are using fondant to cover the cake.
