How am I going to do the head without it being too heavy and falling off, as I assume I will need to use dowels at an angle!! And is there any tutorials on how to carve a cat/lion/any animal in the lying position around?!
Thanks in advance x
The great thing is that Simba is lying down. Treat his head like its own cake with a need for dowels and a plate to hold it up. I drew this last year, but if you realize that the head needs a plate. It must be treated like a separate tier that sits above (and get supported by the bottom of the body tier.
I would definitely suggest a first pass at this cake - then by the time you make the actual cake, you'll be calmer and will have learned a ton from making the sample. I tried making a monster cake and it looked no where near the target monster. I was never so thankful that it was for a relative. I learned SOOOO much and now have a great idea for lightweight bat wings :-)
