This was a groom's cake. The cake was red velvet with cream cheese icing covered in fondant and airbrushed. The 2 legs were big dowels screwed into the wooden base with another wooden base screwed to the top of the llegs. I glued a piece of styrofoam under the top board for the bottom of the body. I used cereal treats to shape the head and tail. He just kind of came to life once I airbrushed him.
