My BIL wants a cake shaped like a white tiger for his Birthday. I was wondering if anyone could give me any pointers or advice on accomplishing this. TIA.
I would google tigers and find a picture of a tiger that I liked. Print it to size and cut out the border to make a template to cut my cake with. Good luck!
I've seen people use the Wilton 3D lamb pan and remove the head. Then use a styrofoam ball for the head secured on dowls in the cake board. Then fondant or modeling chocolate is applied to the head to mold the face.
It sounds like your BIL wants the whole tiger, not just the head, LOL -- but this might change his mind. Look how gorgeous it is!
That's actually one of the best 'star method' cakes I have ever seen.
Do you have a figure or tiger toy you can look at while carving? I like having something 3d infront of me when I have to do some things, that way you can see portions and such.
I'd probably do one with his head laying on his arms that way you don't have to worry about the support in the head.

flat or 3d?
JGMB - thanks for the link that cake looks awesome.
Renae- Either one. The thing about making cakes just for my family/friends and not charging, usually they won't be very specific (which is good and bad IMO)
I had originally thought to try it in 3D because the ones I have seen looks so amazing but the picture that JGMB linked too and this one both look really good.
It's wonderful, and I'm sure the birthday boy loved it!!!!!
