2 9 inch cakes.

1. The first cake you cut in half and ice them together in a half moon shape. This is the body. You place it on your cake board, hump side up Crumb coat.

2. The second cake you cut in half as well. With one half, cut it into two quarters, these are the back legs.

3. The other half is the only tricky part. Cut a small half moon shape, this is the face. Place it flat against the body.

4. With the rest of the cake scrapes (it should be kind of a rainbow shape) cut four squares. One is the tail. One is the nose. Two are to make the ears... Most of this cake is shaped by the icing

5.Glue everything together with icing. Crumb coat and let sit in the refrigerator for a bit.

6. To decorate. Get your grass tip. Begin at the back and bottom and work your way forward and up making fur. (I will post these pic's later today)

I have used toothpick to keep everything together, but you don't have to. I use tootsie rolls died black for the eyes and nose and a pink laffy taffy for the tongue.

Hope this helps.

Well, It took forever because I kept waiting for a reason to make this cake--and then I thought "Cake Does not Need a Reason!"

Sorry the pics are so dark--taken with my camera phone. I am waiting for my frosting to soften and I will finish the decorating pictures.

Thanks to everyone who PM'd me and kept the fire lit under my hiney!

I couldn't figure out how to submit it to Jackie. Maybe she will see it here.

Isn't it amazing how something can seem so hard, and when it's explained well, and broken down for you, your like, "Wow, I can do that!!" icon_lol.gif

Thanks,

Thanks for taking the time to do that, justfrosting. It's very much appreciated!

LisaMS Posted 25 Jun 2007 , 2:44pm

how very nice of you to show a tutorial. too cute. i'd like to try this one day.

justfrosting Posted 25 Jun 2007 , 2:51pm

How much frosting...well, I do it with one batch of VIVA BC. It ends of being A LOT of frosting. Crumb coating well will help, because it will cover any holes that may show through.

You have to reallllly like frosting because this cake has a lot of it.

Another note, I have only needed to support this cake once out of the 6 times I have attempted it. I woke up one morning and the ear had fallen off, I reattached with a toothpick.

Also, the toes are piped before you cover with fur.
