Are you wanting to make a male lion with a mane? Does it have to be realistic looking? There are lion heads on the cupcakes in my photos that might help if the lion doesn't have to be realistic. The body just may look like a dog's body until you put the puff at the end of the tail. icon_smile.gif

I made one for the zoo cake and have one in my pictures. If that is what your looking for, I will PM you some pointers if you like.

I made one for my Oz cake it had more of a human face and probably not what you need. What you might take from it was that I used royal icing piped to make his mane... might be something you could do as well. HTH!
