Hi everyone
I have to make a 3D tiger for August 3rd. I found some directions but my problems is I will like it to have the head stand up like the picture below.
Any one has some instructions or a link. I hope I can pull this one up.

I used rice krispy treats for the head with fondant tail, and paws and ears. I am unable to attach my pics here for some reason, but feel free to look it up on here:

What if you used the 3D Lamb pan and just altered it to be a tiger.

Mayra what size of pans did you used? do you have photos from the process? Did you shape the face without a mold? How the head it supported?

Hi Lizie, I used a 9x13 double stacked and carved it into the body, as far as the face i molded it by hand and for the nose and mouth area I let dry a piece of fondant for the shape and glued it on. After the pieces were dry and stuck to the rice krispie treats I was able to cover it with fondant with out the weight pulling down the pieces. I hope my explantion will help its sometimes difficult to explain some things. I should have taken photos but I have now learned my lesson. icon_smile.gif

Thank you for your reply. Your white tiger is really awesome. I'm going to start with the face this week to see how it goes and prepare a template of the body.
