Big Bird's First Easter

This is my first attempt at a carved cake, and my second try with fondant. This was inspired by a cake I saw on Cakecentral and another on Flikr, but I added my own spin on it with extra cracks in the shell and Big Bird legs. The cake is strawberry with vanilla frosting and fondant. I skewered the fondant legs into the cake and they sagged from the weight. Next time I use dowels. I put down black fondant first, behind the white fondant, so it'd look better when I cut out the cracked area (thanks Duff). Unfortunately you can see the two rectangular patches of black showing through the white a little-- but it's not too bad... I'm still learning.
