I made this ski boat cake out of a half sheet cake, cut it in half, glued it together with butter cream frosting and then shaped it. I used fondant pieces to make the boat details. The figurines were made out of dolls and arms reglued into the position they needed to be. Strings were attached to the skiers and then tied together and placed them in a plastic cut dowel which goes right in the cake. These 15 skiers were attached to a paint stick with a rod supporting it in the back.
I screwed the pyramid into a covered board which was iced with frosting. This cake was for a Webfooters ski team members birthday party. Birthday boy did no let anyone eat the cake on his birthday because he wanted to bring it to school and show it too his classmates! That made me so happy to see how excited he was!
