This was for my brother-in law's birthday. This is actually the 2nd attempt at this cake. The first one met an untimely death. I had to re-make this in about an hour after I stopped crying of course. It still came out ok. The first one was better. The deer body is chocolate clay and the antlers are fondant and gumpaste. It took a week for those to dry. I rubbed some chocolate on them to make them look a little weathered.
