I think you should try to make one just for fun, perhaps it'll help you get over the fear of snakes. especially if you cartoonify it a bit

Thanks to all of you! 

It was extremely difficult to carve this thing out so it made sense!


I have a boa as a pet, my husband is into snakes lol so it was really inspiring to look at it and copy it. 

As far as your fear of snakes, I think once you get in the process of making it, baking the cakes, carving and all that you'll be too focused to look at the big picture. It wasnt until I was completely done that I took a step back and saw the final product, before then, I was all up on there getting the small details done. You should try it!!

Did you use the tutorial from Northstar cakes?  I saw this online that had the exact same colors that you used.  Wondered if it was worth buying?

AThis is amazing. I want to make one for my boyfriend as he is a snake breeder. That looks like the albino burmese python he has. Very realistic!

I have the tutorial by North Star Cakes (It's incredible, worth every penny)... http://northstarcakes.com/

She uses an impression mat for the skin.


Here's a free tutorial where the decorator uses something really cool for the texture...it looks great: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.418585258189614.87684.134883726559770&type=1
