This cake is strawberry flavoured sponge with vanilla butter-cream.
All the little balls for the fur effect were hand-made from fondant/sugarpaste and glued together with Royal icing.
The cake measured around 32cm tall form cake board.
....and yes, carved from 1 cake, a 6 inch one.
....and let me know how it goes, I'd love to know ^^
....and most welcome my friend. I know it really helps me to see designs broken down, so I try to do as many
stages photos as I can for others to see
Did you used any support for the head, besides the main dowel in the center?
...an no....I just took a chance that the shape and size of the head would support itself under the icing. I take more risks with the
kids cakes as I know I can change or correct mistakes
....The start of the sponges are around 3-4 inches tall, depending how well they have risen. I mainly use 6 inch tins for the 3D ones, so that might give you a bit of an idea of the size.
Thankyou for your comment ^^
I hate it up to the stage where I've carved it, and get the first layer of icing on. All sorts can...and do go wrong. After that though, it's just dressing it up.
realise how many I would need!
