Lion Head Cake

The customer ordered a lion head cake and this is what we came up with. We decided to go for more of a cartoon look rather than real. It was for a child and we did not want him to be scared of the cake. It is a large round cake and 2 large cupcakes.

How I made it

The cake and cupcakes are iced tan and than airbrushed to give the lion a little dimension. His face is drawn on using buttercream and chocolate straws for his whiskers. His hair consist of different color icings striped in a bag, than piped out using a grass tip.lion's head cake
