The basic cake was a 9 inch round cake, that was cut up and reassembled. The sides went to make the head.
Now covering with buttercream.
Then decorated. The body was piped buttercream icing to get some texture, the head was covered with black roll out icing, the offcuts were used to make the hands and ears. The eyes were more piped white icing, with a very small amount coloured red for the tongue. In the picture he looks zany. In the cake he just looks a little crazy.
