this is very cute and creative, I really love how you used a chocolate orange to make his head. The person who won this was very lucky . I hope the raffle made a lot of money for the school

Thankyou :)...and those chocolate oranges have been a life-saver for these sort of designs.
...I was really tempted to buy tickets myself, but thought it wouldn't be fair.
As it worked out, one of the teachers won it ! ^^

I think the person who won it had it on their dining table over Christmas. They didn't want to eat it either ^^

That sounds good....:)
I'm usually a bit caked out by Christmas and just throw something together.
I did Lara's House last year, and it added to the fun of it all...:)

Fabulous! Such detail, really well done :) Surely it's too good for a school raffle! You are very kind.
Even the tongue texture is realistically shiny - did you use a glaze or something?

:iconginas-cakes:
ginas-cakes Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Thankyou.... :) and yes, it was an apricot glaze. It supposed to be used to stick
icing to marzipan, but dries quite shiny.
While the kids were in primary school, I loved getting involed to help, and felt
I needed to as I have 5 :)

Ah, very clever! Yes, I've used apricot jam too in sticking marzipan to cakes then icing to marzipan. I'll bear that in mind, should I ever need a shiny finish! Thanks for the tip :D

Keep up the beautiful work.

there are probably other ways to make it shiny. I know you can buy edible glaze, but I can't get on with it :)

Wait, do you make custom cakes for people? If so what are the prices?

This one was made and given to my childrens school to raise money for them :)
I make cakes to order, but because they are so different, the prices are all different :)

It's really hard to say.....there is such alot of details to go over in cake orders. Custom made cakes are very detailed and personal from the inside to the outside :)
