A lady I work with was moving and leaving her job. She loves moose and the color green. I baked this Moose cake from a sheet cake the day before and stored it loosely covered. I used boxed cake mix and canned icing.
The next day I iced the sheet cake and placed the moose head on top. I molded the moose head out of 2 batches of rice crispy treats. I warmed dark chocolate icing just enough so it was pourable and covered the head and warmed chocolate for the antlers. After it had cooled I iced it all again with more icing with a butter knife to make it a smooth as possible.
The eyes are large marshmallows cut in half with a mini gumball in the center. I warmed a cherry now & later and shaped a tongue and pressed a tooth pick into it to push into the rice crispies. I wrote We'll moose you Mrs. Mary which the idea came from this website.
I used two small metal bowls as cake pans, whose content formed the tip of the nose and the head. I used a small loaf pan, whose content formed the middle between the nose and the head; I sculpted this and added brown icing all over it. I used black, or what I had attempted to make black, icing for the nostrils and the eyes.
For the antlers and ears, I made a rice crispie mix with melted chocolate; I sculpted them and froze them. I also put long skewer toothpicks in them, as well as smaller toothpicks in the antler branches, for support. I don't think rice crispies work very well; they ended up melting about five minutes after they were on the moose. It would be better to find a caramel recipe or something similar which hardens. Licorice with toothpicks might work.
My friend owns a rattery, so I decided for her birthday that I would attempt to make her a rat cake. All you need is two containers of white icing, any kind of cake mix and candy that can be made in to ears ,nose and a tail.
Make the cake first, let it cool and stick it in the frige for an hour or so. If it's cool and not warm, then start carving the shape of the rat. When done cover the whole cake in icing. To make the spikes I used a plastic baggy and cut a small tip off. The tail of the rat is two gummy worms. The feet and nose are made out of watermelon gummies and the eyes are just black frosting.
I hope you enjoy using your own creativity and Making your own.
I have seen the beautiful 3-D otter cakes on the web, and I was daunted when my daughter wanted us to make an otter cake for her birthday. But I figured I probably could pull off a picture of an otter done in chocolate butter cream. It would be delicious, too!
So, we baked a chocolate cake, frosted it very smoothly in butter cream tinted the "right" shade of blue (according to my daughter), and used a star frosting tip to draw the otter in chocolate butter cream so that it looked "furry." Details were added with a tube of Wilton's black decorator icing and a writing tip.
We placed a card in its paws saying "Happy Birthday" and the final touch was decorating around the edge with chocolate rocks.
I made this Skully (Jake and the Neverland Pirates) cake for my daughter's 4th birthday. I used a picture off the net which I blew up and cut out for the stencil of the cake. I baked one large rectangle cake then using the stencil I made cut around it to get the right shape. Then I iced according to the picture. I went out and found some blue and red feathers which I used for his tail.
