My 3 year old nephew wanted a homemade Goldy Gopher cake. The images I found of Goldy were a little detailed and not anything I wanted to attempt to transfer to a cake at the time (8 months pregnant).
Instead I used a #16 tip to draw the Minnesota “M” on the cake, I then printed a double sided picture of Goldy, had it laminated and used it as a cake topper.
My nephew loved it and I think it turned out great! The hardest part was probably mixing the maroon frosting!
