A Tigger Cake for my grandson's 1st Birthday!
You can see on his face he was in deep thought while eating this cake.
Gorgeous little Birthday Boy!
I started with orange gumpaste. I formed a head, ears, legs, body, arms and a tail. I took a wood skewer and inserted into the body so that I could attached the head.
Next I took the head and cut an opening for the mouth.
I then added yellow gumpaste.
Here I added a light pink nose and tongue.
Then two little black eyes and brows.
I attached the pieces together with a little water and then added stripes.
I gently presse the head onto the wood skewer that I had interested at the first. Then I painted some toothpicks black and used them for whiskers.
I made a little party hat and present for Tigger. I also made a large fondant bow for the smash cake.
