Cutest 1st Birthday Cake

Some of the stuffed animals these days are so cute! I made this cake as a replica of the little boys favorite stuffed animal, Buster. The character is actually named "Winnie the Horse". I think this is one of my most favorite cakes!

It was a lot more difficult to carve out this cake, but the mother sent me picture of the stuffed animal from all different angles so that really helped (see below). The main body was 4 layers of vanilla butter cake and each of the feet were 2 layers of vanilla butter cake.
I wonder if I could re-create my favorite childhood stuffed toy. Mine was a baby boy with a plastic head and pink stuffed body with small white polka dots. I carried it around all the time and I named it "Oh Boy" for some strange reason... What was your favorite childhood stuffed toy?

That is adorable! What is your trick to covering round surfaces with fondant??? Especially the bottom parts! I've been wondering ever since I saw the amazing baseball and sphere cake!

Mine is a dark brown koala I named Cocoa; and a deer I named "have no fear, reindeer's here."

Hmmm. They're both in my daughter's room right now. I hope I remember all the funny names she calls her toys...

This cake is so so cute!!

I would love to make a replica of my daughter's favourite toy...her bear (which we made when she was 9 months old at the 'Build a Bear Factory'. She's now three and a half and she carries Bella Bear around everywhere...and snuggles to sleep next to her each and every night. Bella Bear is our third child!! On the weekend we're going to build our 2nd daughter a bear (she's 8 months on Monday)...so we will officially have a fourth child by the end of this week!!!
