Tigger Cake

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.

  16. Darling cake! You are very talented!

  17. Absolutely adorable! My son would like this because he was Tigger for Halloween. He's #15 on this page: I got him a Tigger ornament for Christmas. Yes, big boys like Tigger too!

  18. You have just made a grown girl tear up--I am, doubtless, one of the biggest Tigger fans around (Milne or Disney), and this cake is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing this precious gem, and a happy belated to your grandson ('cuz he's the only one!)!

  19. Absolutely gorgeous! I haven't gotten as far into gum paste as created a character, but you're tutorial makes it look relatively easy. Thanks so much!

  20. Simply fantastic! Would love to have the Tigger as a toy pattern - he'd make a great addition to the ColdhamCuddlies family and be a fitting brother to my Long-Legged Tigger who is already with us! Isobel at!

  21. WOW that is so awesome, and you make it look so easy like I might actually be able to do it easy. Thank you so much for sharing on We Made That!
