This Cheetah birthday cake was cut out of a half-sheet cake. To get the shape I used a small piercing knife to cut the basic outline of the cat out. Next I iced the cake using a cake icer tip. Next I figure-piped the legs and arms and face with a a coupler tip. I created fur texture by using a fork starting from the outside working inwards. I airbrushed the details and piped on the spots etc.
Once you do a few cutout cakes you really get the hang of it and can choose almost anything. Coolest Birthday cakes website is soo helpful for ideas, that is why I like to share my ideas as well. This cake was for a little girl who loved cheetahs and wanted a cool cake like everyone else gets! The cake was a hit!
