Out of what? Cake? A painted tiger? A flat tiger? A carved tiger? A modeled tiger? A buttercream tiger? Fondant? Gumpaste? Is it meant to be eaten? icon_biggrin.gif

There are many tiger cakes in the gallery. If you find one that you like you can contact the baker and ask if they will share the instructions. I find most people here are very generous with their help. Good Luck!

Oh, so she is looking for a tiger shaped cake. I couldn't tell. Thought it might be a modeled figurine or a transfer or something.

If you're looking for a cartoon tiger? Then I'd search Google images for "cartoon tiger" or something similar... Find one you like and try to copy what you see... If you want a serious tiger then search fro real pics and try that? Sculpting in fondant is fun if you think of it as soft clay!! Look for a clay sculpting how to online. just remember it will need some sort of structure inside if you want to stand it up
don't feel like I'm helpin much but feel free to cantact me if you need to talk about it!!

Yes-sculpting how tos. Google "fondant tiger" or "molded tiger"'s really a visual process. Sit down and just go for it.
