In fondant or buttercream? If it's buttercream I print out a picture (the actual size you need) and lay it over the crumb coated cake. I use a toothpick to trace the face onto the icing on the cake. Then I pipe over the tracing in the colors I need. If it's fondant I'm sure you could still print a picture and trace the eyes, nose, mouth, etc over the fondant and then attach to the cake. I'm sure there's a better way, but if all else fails...

@cakemama... Thank you very much for your suggestion, it's a good idea worth trying!

@james... As a mother of young kids Barney - of course - is the purple dinosaur, never thought there could be another one icon_lol.gif

If anyone else has suggestions/tips that will help me execute this cake please post, thank you!!!
