Looks like just layers of BC to me. Maybe you could make it out of fondant, though. Dunno. I also never knew what a Hokie was. Who knew it was a bird!!?!?!?!

BC Icing.

No, really. She just used the stand-up bear pan and instead of making the bear's nose/snout...she just made it into a beak.

I know sometimes it is hard to figure out how something was done. I have that problem ALL the time!!!! What a cute cake!

looks like royal icing maybe...stiff consistency so that you can get the shape and then let it harden.

I would add a cupcake trimmed or a triangular peice of cake then skewer it or use straws, then ice it. I did her wolf and added a cupcake for the snout. I personally don't like piling icing something always goes wrong for me and I always think of that person who gets a mouthful of inches of icing.

Another way to do it would be to make it out of Wilton Candy melts. Paint them over something that has the shape you want, be sure it is thick enough not to break, then remove when hardened gently and press into icing on cake where you want it to fit, then ice around it to hold in place.

Good luck, I love her cakes, she has more ideas for the 3-D Bear pan than anyone else I've seen.
