Does anyone have some suggestions on how to make a Taz? It will be just a figurine on a cake-so it doesnt have to be made out of cake. Thanks!

In case you were unaware, it is against the law to duplicate copyright material except for personal use...
(Don't think Canadian laws would be substantially different.)

Using RKT's to model a Taz (to whatever size you need) is one method.

Here's an article on making an Elmo RKT birthday cake topper:
(Includes RKT recipe and step by step directions which you can adapt for Taz.)

Is this a child's birthday cake or a wedding cake topper?

It's for my brother in laws birthday cake and I do not charge for my cakes as I usually do them as a gift. How is it that other people have pictures of taz cakes on here if it is illegal? Just curious.

Thanks for the links.

I'm pretty sure one of Debbie Brown's books has step by step instructions on how to make a one. You might be able to track it down at your local library.
