AMy daughters birthday on Wednesday and I'm planning to do her favourite build a bear bunny as her cake, could any one offer me any advise ,I'm so worried about the structure after watching than many tutorials on the 3d bears no one seems to board and dowel after the normal 4" height , I've baked today 2 -7" round 1-6" 3-5" sponges I'm planning on stacking and carving tomorrow , my expected total height will be approx body 5" tall head and 3 1/2" tall, Total height 8 1/2" Filling will be buttercream , I will do the clothes in fondant and the bunny fur in buttercream, Would you cake card and dowel under the head? Or just use one Center dowel ? Or nothing like Paul Bradfords bear cake tutorial.? I'm planning on using the 3d bear method and changing it a little so I get the bunny effect, And advise will be greatly appreciated Thank you[ATTACHMENT=1894]image.jpg (28k. jpg file)[/ATTACHMENT]

Personally I would place a board & dowels under the head.  I am no expert by any means so perhaps someone with more experience has a better idea.

AThank you for replying to my post Goreti, I build the rabbit up today I thought the same as you in the end,I put the board and dowels under the head just to be safe, it turned out ok for my first attempt I'm sure she will love it :-)

I'm sure she will.  It means so much more because her mom made it.  Wishing her a very Happy Birthday.

Look at the Yenners Way OLAF cake tutorial on the home page here and you will be able to see how he stacks his- he is a genius
