I love this little fellow! He was created as the bride & groom's special cake. When I make any kind of cake like this, I customize it...individualize it. It's no fun having mass produced cakes or limited designs from catalogues, and I refuse to do that. I stacked and carved dark mocha cakes, filled and crumb coated with espresso icing. That enables the fondant to adhere to the cake and not just slide off. The entire body was cake. I added some sugar sculpted features and birds to symbolize bride, groom and their children. ~ Congratulations Sarah & Kyle!!
