I've been asked to make a snoopy cake that looks somewhat like this

http://www.myfreewallpapers.net/cartoons/wallpapers/sleeping-snoopy.jpg

I've never done anything like this before and have no idea where to start. Has anyone ever carved a cake like this and, if so, how did you go about it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I havent carved a cake yet but if i was going to make this snoopy cake i would trace his outline on a sheet of greasproof paper or similar, cut it out, place on the cake then cut carve around it slowly.

I'm far from experienced myself and am feeling kind of nervous about this cake but that seems like a good start to me.

I'm wondering whether to use sheet cake or to do seperate cakes.... Thinking sheet cakes would be best but I really need to height as it's 3d.

Chala86, click on the link. There's a Snoopy cake very close to what you've been asked to make. There's no instructions, but the cake photo should make it easier for you to figure out the shaping/carving you'll have to do.
If you click on the photo it will enlarge, click it twice, and it'll enlarge even more.
I stink at carving cakes so my suggestions might not be the best to go by.. But.. If it was me making the cake, I'd proably bake two "halves" for carving, as the neck area is so narrow. Carve one half for the head and one for the body, then join the two halves at the neck. Feet and arms could be molded from rice krispie treats as that would make them lighter.
