My DIL has a friend who asked me to do a cake for her 13 year old son. He is an avid hunter and loves deer. I have never tried to make a deer out of fondant, not sure I can.

Does anyone have any ideas on a design for this cake??
Any ideas would be appreciated!!

Thanks
Rhonda

Love this hunting cake! I would reccomend trying the deer out of marshmallow fondant (cheaper for a trial!). If you're not happy with the results, just trace a deer head/body picture with chocolate and stand up on top of the cake instead. The rest of the cake is simply done and the camoflauge is a cute touch. Good luck with your cake and post pics!!

If you are not feeling good about making a deer out of fondant how about a half ball pan (or pyrex bowl) with antlers sticking out of it to save the trouble of making the whole deericon_smile.gif

This is fantastic!!! The 13 year old will flip!!! I will try and copy it, though I'm sure I can't make the deer... Maybe the antlers?? I'm not too talented when it comes to modeling something.

Thank you both for the suggestions and I do appreciate it!!

Thanks
Rhonda

Maybe you could order this mold and mold the deer from chocolate or fondant.....
