The Last of the Four Mini Cakes

That sounds like a great movie title, doesn't it?

 I like to call this one: The Beakless Owl Monster from Space (which, now that I think about it, would also make a great movie).

Here's the back of the little cake monster:

I had a lot of fun with this little guy. I didn't really have a set plan in my head for the design. I just wanted to try new things. I used floral wire again to make the 3 floating eyes. I used homemade fondant to make the eyes, the bug, and the tail. The fur is buttercream frosting that I piped on with a star tip.

I used frosting bullets (some people call them frosting plugs) in order to get the two-tone (orange/yellow) effect in the fur. Frosting bullets are a great way to keep the colors from smooshing together in the piping bag and also help with cleanup. Check the STATS section for tutorials on making your own frosting bullets.

Time to Get Caking!
