My little cousin had a cake request for her birthday: Shrek!
How am I gonna do that? That was my immediate question.
Well I started with my standing bear pan and pound cake
Then I tried to sculpt a little with my kitchen knife
Then I used ganache for the crumb coat
I decided to cover roughly with a green layer of fondant (MMF in this case) to use the technique I made on my fairy face (also posted that here in CC).
So I added all the convenient volumes with more mmf: nose, cheeks, chin and upper lips.
Then, to prevent me from dirtying the final layer of fondant with chocolate I covered the rest of the cake with saram wrap.
And then I added the mmf layer.
I made the final touches trying to add some expression to the face. I used my pme tools to help me.
I made the eyes apart from the cake. I used white mmf and painted the iris with a thin brush.
Then added the eyelidswith green mmf. I had to make them twice!
So, finnaly, when I was happy with them I glued them with a little brush of water.
The eyebrows were also painted.
The ears were made with green mmf too, with a toothpick inside and were left to dry
The finished cake is posted on my photos.

You are so talented. Thanks for this!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share this! So clever to start with the bear pan
I'd like to mention too, that this cake has been decorated a week before the party and I FROZE it!
I decorated the whole cake and wrapped carefully with saran wrap. I left the ears out to dry, but the rest was all frozen.
Then I took it out a day and a half before, put it inside a cardbox to absorve part of the air humidity and to make the thawing slow. I only took off the saran wrap when it was completely thawed.
It was PERFECT!!!
