Is this stork on the cake a cake pan or is it carved?

I have an order for a stork cake and the customer has requested a cake like this one. I am trying to find out if the cake is a mold or if it was carved. My client is adamant that this is the cake that she has to have. 

Any of your help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!

wow can those folks smooth a cake or what!

 

that's from freed's in las vegas they are a cake pumping factory--in a very good way

 

they prolly carved it--they are super cakers -- i very much admire their prolific work

 

it's either all buttercream

 

or they poured a glaze on it separate and placed baby & stork on the cake

 

but you can so see where  a little blue gets in the white and vice versa

 

if i was to try & replicate i'd do a shortening buttercream for the stork & baby

 

it could be fondant but their buttercream is like glass

 

the hat band is fondant icon_biggrin.gif (I got one right i'm sure!)

my cookies are prettier than your cookies because this is the second time i substituted my opalescent sanding sugar when i ran out of sugar to make the batch ha!

I agree it looks like a pan, because where the legs cross the inside should be blue, not cake colored...if I'm seeing it right...but I googled it and couldn't find that stork pan...Hmmmmmmmm

My money is on hand-carved and fondant covered in white then airbrushed the different colors.  The sheet is buttercream.

I agree that it is missing a foot!!! Looks incomplete with the foot missing. Everything else looks pretty good.

Brownsugarbaker~~Welcome to the forum. 

 

Here's another version of the stork and baby.  It's a discontinued Wilton pan.  Amazon says they have 2 available:

Here are the PDF instructions for the pan above:

I heard that they pushed those cakes out fast. I am afraid that I am going to have pass on this cake because it will be way too difficult!!

Thank you. I offered this to her and she said "no" that she wants it exactly like Freeds. I am afraid that I will not be able to help her. I don't airbrush and I am not a great carver yet!!

Remnant,

What it looks like to me is that they used a number 4 bread pan and added the foot. Its a cute cake, but I bet it didn't take them long to do it all.
