I've been gone from here forever - thought I was done with making cakes - until this week anyway.  A friend asked me to make a cake for a niece's bridal shower.  Sheep theme.  I was going to do a Shaun the Sheep - just a round layer cake with the large black Shaun face on the top.  The "wool" body will just be buttercream, but I figured that the face should be smooth fondant.  I'm stuck on the details though.  

What should I make it out of?  Should I use cake?  Rice crispie treat?  One big mass of fondant?  Actually all fondant would probably be the easiest, but I'm afraid that a 3/4" slab of fondant would be too heavy, and kinda gross.   ???   I'm stuck.   What would you suggest?

Is it flat, like 2D, horizontal on the cake? Or 3D popping up from the cake? If it's flat, I see no problem with fondant. If it's 3D, you can always just remove the head when cutting.

Well, it's kind of a plump 2d... 3D, but not 3D like a figurine.  But more than a thin sheet of fondant...  at least this is what's in my head....
