I made a lovely unicorn cake for DH's co-worker, thank you CC'ers for inspiration. Very proud of my work, put it in a safe place for the night, went to bed. The next morning, DH is headed to our new bakery to do some work (remodeling) and I decide to show him my masterpiece only to find that the head has fallen completely off of the unicorn!!!! icon_eek.gif

This cake is supposed to be picked up in 4 hours!! I attempted to fix it, but no go, so I made different one, again with inspiration from CC'ers.

Here are the results:

Both cakes look great!

I've done several lamb cakes using the lamb cake pan. I'm guessing you used that pan or one similar. Something I have noticed with that pan is that the neck is very thin and doesn't hold up will with alot of icing on it. I've been known to skewer the heck of out the head and the necks to get the lamb cake to survive the trip to Easter.
