Default Advice needed on cake decorating

Morning folks
I've decided to make my sons cake for his birthday again. I'm making a Mike from monsters. He is just going to be for display so in using a polystyrene ball to model him on. Question is do I put stiffener in the sugar icing for his body so it sets round the ball or not. I know I'll need to for his arms and legs.

Any advice greatly received

Smile Yes you will need stiffners

Hi Murkers, From the little knowledge that I have of making fancy cakes, I know that in order to create a human form, you will need to use stiffners to keep the arms and legs in place. However, you will need a strong cake stand to make the cake stand upright. I was looking everyone for a beautiful one but I couldn't find any. I came across a decent looking one at tavolashop.

Hope this helps.
