Beautiful cake. Wondering how you carved the head? And are the arms fondant?  Thank you for any and all help.  Have never carved something like this before, and wondering where to start.

Hi,
 Firstly, thankyou :)

And the head was carved as I went along. I had to judge the shape and hoped the structure would hold up as I didn't use a support rod through the middle.
This cake was made over three or four days. This was so everything had a chance to settle and harden as I went along which helped the cake keep it's shape.

...and yes, the arms are fondant.

Hope this helps, and I will be glad to help more if you need it.

Thank you for the info.  I stacked and froze my cake a few days ago, and I am just gun shy to make the first cut.  I am just not sure where to start the cutting.  If you have any more advice that would be great.   I did tell my daughter if I screwed it up she would get eeyore's tail.   She just laughed and said fine.  S at least I have a back up plan.  Thanks again!!

Sorry for the late reply....up to my eyeballs in cake :lol:

...it's really a matter of shaving a bit off at a time and seeing what you can get it down to. It
helps to make it slightly thinner than the character your making as the icing plumps it
out a bit. Theres been loads of times I've carved it exact, and after covering with icing, the end result looks tubby :)

Hope that helps, and good luck. Let me know how you get on.

Can you explain how the head is supported please? I'd like to do this for a belated birthday cake for myself!!! Hahaha, too close to Christmas for more cake and sweet stuff so doing end of this month instead! Plus would it work as a choc fudge? Thank you in advance. Hope this works it's my first comment on deviant!!!!!!

Hi :)

....and I didn't use a support for the head. As it was a one-off, I carved and shaped as I went along. I thought that if the head was

unstable, I would use a support rod. It supported itself quite well as I layered the icing on. I made this over 3 or 4 days so that each stage of covering had a good chance

to set a bit.

...and do you mean if the cake would work as chocolate fudge?
