thank you all for your thoughts and ideas....i truely appreciate them.I would be ok with carving, but i have never done it before and therefore, i am not sure how comfortable i am doing it on a non-practice cake.but, what if I cut the sides off of the bottom tier to make it more triangular shape and then used the scrapes to build upwards? would that even work? how hard is it to ice cut cake? does it crumb alot? any suggestion for a first timer?

IMO he looks much better, his outlines are neater, his features are more consistant and he is...
oh hey, i just realized that I dont have to give up...i will just never agree to do a character cake again because of the pressure!!!! give me dots, lines, scrolls, flowers, bows any day, but never again a character!!!oy vey!!!sorry just venting--still!
what recipe do you use? I tried the wilton banana cake recipe this weekend...was very yummy, but came out like a bread rather than a cake.
thank you for your comment...this is the front view of the transfer. flooding the area makes sense. maybe i will try that. I thinned the icing to the consistancy that I use to ice the cake. thanks for the heads up on a curved figure.....but any suggestions on how to get it that way? is the side of the cake not the best place for a FBCT?
