Winter Greetings

My mother, Catherine McClung, is the artist of some holiday dinnerware by Lenox china called "winter greetings." She is having a luncheon tomorrow and wanted a cake to match her china. I hope I did her proud! I was really afraid the cardinals would look "cartoonish." I am doing another one of these for a friend of hers at the end of the week and I think I may do something a little different on the top tier. The cardinals are chocolate transfers. I traced the image off of the bowl that I had.

The cardinals do not look cartoonish. How did you make them? Your mother's artistic talent has been passed onto you!!

Thanks everyone! The cardinals are chocolate transfers. Sorry I forgot to mention that. I also only used real ribbon because I just cant seem to get the hang of fondant ones.
