Small 3D Deer Head

I've had a lot of requests for the deer head cake from people who were having small parties, so I've scaled down the deer head cake. This cake is sitting on a quarter sheet cake board, just to give you a size reference. I made 1 half sheet cake layer and was able to cut out all of the pieces I needed, with lots of left overs. The whole cake is chocolate, iced in BC and airbrushed. The antlers are a child-sized wire hanger, cut and covered w/fondant, then airbrushed as well.

Very realistic looking, excellent - how are the eyes done???

The eyes are done with airbrush, very fine lines. Then, I added the 'reflection' spots with white icing, tip 2. Thanks everyone!

My lands! While I hate thought of a REAL deer having been killed and his head hanging on a board I think this cake came out wonderful. How in the world did you get the eyes to look so real?
