This was a painful learning experience! Chocolate cake carved/covered w/fondant. RKT feet, beak and head. Hubby cut himself carving the cardboard to shape of the body needed 2 stitches. I was cleaning up after we were done and I cut myself on a fondant blade and had to have 5 stitches! My friend loved it! The displaying board is 28 X 22 so you can see how big it is. I've never carved anything but a pillow before but had a good time trying! Also a big THANK YOU to Mike Elder for answering my fondant questions!
