I am not a skilled cake maker, first off!
I have a friend who I adore who has been working very hard remodeling our place where we work together. Her birthday is about four weeks away, and I was considering making her a beaver cake (as she has been busy as a beaver). I found a few extraordinary beaver cakes by googling, but I know they are too advanced for me. I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions for doing a fairly simple beaver cake. I am willing to learn new tricks and buy new tools and work hard on the cake...but I know I have a ceiling as far as how much I can improve.
Other ideas are possible too (busy as a bee, for example...I guess a beaver would look so cute though with the fur, and perhaps one of those long stick pretzels that I could chisel down in the middle as though the animal had been working on it). She is also very handy with tools. A tool kit type cake would work, but I considered doing that in the past for another handyman but I really didn't like the idea.
Here are a few previous cakes I have made for various birthdays, just to show my skill level (low skill!):

By the way, I just found this and it is awesome yet attainable...
I love the creativity on your cakes! The owl is awesome and I love the monkey's cocoa Krispy fur!!! :)
