I have just started decorating cakes. My son would like a gorilla cake. I am wondering if there is a shaped pan that I can decorate like a gorilla. Thanks

You can use a 3-d Bear cake pan and decorate it to look like a gorilla.  You may even be able to make the chest plate, fingers  and snout of the gorilla out of fondant or candy clay to make it look more realistic.  The grass tip is great for making things look hairy, but puts a cramp in your hand.  you can also frost and then use a fork to make the frosting rough to make it look hairy.  Hope that helps and Good Luck!

AI love clay extruders, squish your fondant through the fine holes and you have wonderful gorilla hair!
