I had a request for this Possum Cake as part of a theme for a funny family reunion. I put it in a box with a screen over top of it and it looked pretty convincing.
I used red velvet cake filled with cream cheese icing and decorator buttercream for fur. I used my airbrush to give it the two tone affect and gumpaste for teeth and tongue.

That’s amazing. How did you get that to look so fuzzy? I get the airbrush, which really adds to the realism, but how on earth did you get that to look so furry with buttercream, you have to share. Absolutely awesome cake.
The grass tip makes great fur! Sure, it takes a long time, but the effect is awesome!
Do you bake and sell cakes? Looking for someone to make my daughter’s birthday cake.
Yes I do, see my website at http://www.allaboutthecake.biz.
What type of pan did you use?
I didn’t. This cake is carved out of a stack of rectangular cakes.
How many cakes did you stack?
I think this was probably about 4 layer, sheet pans, but of course the number of layers goes with how big you need the cake and how much filling. so really, the number of layers will vary. Thanks!!
What did you do to make it look like it had fur?
That looks so real it’s scary! Awesome job!
Our youngest daughter has a pet possum .She even has her own facebook page .
