Now for the details that need tight control, use fondant icing. Start with the eyes.
Cut out the oval eyes.
Roll out a little fondant; put the rest in a ziploc.
Carve out the eyes using a small, sharp knife.
Use the template to roughly place them on the cake.
Press them in gently with your fingers.
Now cut the mouth.
Place it with the template as a guide.
You can use the knife to align the tongue or other tiny details.
Then the eyebrows.
I used a toothpick to place a dollop of left over white icing as the eye highlights.
And that's it. Below is the final piece before I slide it into the cake box.
What about all the left over cake? I chunked it up into a bowl and gave it to my friends at work as "Cake Chunks" - sooooooo goooooood!
