3D Toothless tutorial
Perpare the cakes a few days before and pop them in the freezer. Take them out when you are ready to start. It is much easier to cut the cakes when they are frozen.
I could have taken more off the tail, making it thinner and more round.
I should have let the cake "warm up" a bit. It was still very cold and so the butter icing got very hard on it. In future I will let the cake defrost a bit more and put more butter icing on. This helps you mould it a bit to get the nicest shape.
Cut the fondant a bit away from the bottom of the cake - then fold that bit extra underneath - giving a nice clean edge.
Make little horns and ears. I made little dents in the head to help this sit. The horns just stuck on their own. I used toothpicks into the head to help hold the ears in place.
Make a little foot with toes.
Eyes and tail added and then all the little spots that the children made.
