Massage In Texture
To add musculature to the leg, use your fingertips to massage the fondant into form. I accentuated the calf muscle with my fingers and the side of my palm. You want the cake to accept these grooves, so you don’t want it super firm. Continue to shape knee dimples, straighten shin bones, an ankle ball bone, and the veins that are visible where your leg meets your foot. Keep looking down at your leg!...or ask a friend to model.
