My entry in the New York Cake Convention. It took 2nd place for 3-D Sculpted Cake, Intermediate Division.
Body is all cake. Paws and head are made of rice krispie treats. Many thanks for Susie108 for her help and to gossimerwings for inspiration. I've added some construction photos which hopefully will help! To support the head, I used four dowels nailed into a wooden circle. I drilled a hole into it and stuck a dowel through to keep the head in place (see photos).
