My 10 yr old has a favorite stuffed animal that is a snow leopard. I am making her a b'day cake with a leopard transfer sheet on the sides and would like to make a small leopard figure for the cake. Does anyone know of how to do this or can you provide a link to a tutorial? I guess it could be a lion and change the coloring/spots... thank you so much. icon_smile.gif

Here's one for a lion:

Also, you could get some Sculpey or other clay books from the library and see if they have a leopard in there you could copy with fondant or GP.

I'd google it opening your search up to clay or other mediums. A lot of the times those can be translated to cake stuff.

I have found that using cereal treats as the base then using 50 % moldeling chocolate and 50% fondant works well to do you sculpting I have done many horses using this technique. I hope this helps

there is a small softback book on sale called sugar animals by frances mcnaughton. it is only£4.99 UK or $9.99 US. you will probably find it online. there are instructions for a really cute leopard and it is so easy to follow . hope this helps.
