Also on these boards
All cake except for fondant antlers. It is kindof difficult to describe how it was done, but I will try. The neck is an upside down doll pan. I placed dowel rods in this then cut a board for the snout and head to sit on top. The head and snout are carved from 6" round cakes put together. I made the antlers way ahead of time with fondant so that they had time to dry hard. The ears are also fondant. The rest is just buttercream icing.
Mounted Deer Cake - The antlers are made out of wire, tinfoil and masking tape covered in white and chocolate almond bark. Cake was carved out of a mixture of oval and round cakes. All done in buttercream. The deer was modeled after an actual deer mounted by the birthday boy! Thanks for all the help given here!
