Cake by Jana C., Mansfield, TX

My daughter’s school mascot is a purple panther and we needed a cake for her teacher’s birthday! No Panther pans around! So, I made this cake with the Animal Cracker’s Wilton cakes pan.

I printed a picture of the Pink Panther, blew it up to the size of the pan and trimmed out the lower jaw area to match the panther jaw line. The ears were a bit more squared off so I trimmed a bit off of them too. Using the Pink Panther as a reference, I piped in the details before using the standard #16 Wilton tip to star in the color. Instead of purple, you could use pinks and have a Pink Panther!
