I was asked by a customer to make a homemade Fox cake for her husband, looked on the net and as you can imagine, they are quite scarce. So, I took the bull by the horns and decided to carve one using a drawing of a fox that I found on the net.

The Fox was all curled up asleep and looked so sweet. I thought it would be easier to transport this way too, rather than sitting on haunches. I made the cake from quite a dense chocolate sponge and buttercream and covered it in white fondant icing. I then textured it with a knife.

I’m very fortunate, because my father-in-law bought me an air brusher, this has been really useful, but especially in this case, I don’t think it would have looked as effective without it. I added the ears in fondant icing too, then sprayed away and voila! I was pretty pleased with myself, as I had been having panic attacks over it.
