Deer Hunting

This cake was for my dad when he came to visit us. It was the first person I made. The deer was the hardest part of the cake. I tried making it a full deer, but I couldn't get it to stand up. I was trying to just use tiny wire and fondant (I think I needed to use gum paste or heavier wire). Originally he was going to be standing in front of the 2 trees. I ended up just working on the face and making him peek out, so I didn't need the rest of the body. I also couldn't get the antlers to stay up, so the tree held them up. All in all, I think it turned out to be a nice surprise for my dad who has never seen any of my cakes.
