I found this cute cow, or one like it on the internet and I changed it to fit my cake. I think he is the best sculpture on the cake. Thomas and the gates were the most difficult to do and they are far from great. But you can recognize him and Sebby said that this was, "The most awesome cake ever!" So if he likes it then it is a great success. I used popsicle s
I needed something for the back of the cake so I made a tree and put a little blue bird in it. I know I have several different kinds of trees on here. I wanted the bottom layer to look more "valley-meadow" and the top a rocky mountain for the tunnel. Not perfect but you get the general idea.
This little lamb is supposed to be wooly. He isn't nearly as good as the cow I made, but he is still cute so we used him because Sebby didn't want me to throw him in the trash. So he is here thanks to him. I should have made some buddies for him but this cake was taking way too long and I don't have ideal work area to spread out like I want.

These were fairly easy to make. They were time consuming only because they have to be chilled between each step. I made three flavors. Kalua, Creme de Minth, and Rasberry. The coatings are chopped pecans with the Kalua, Andes baking chips with the Creme de Minth, and powdered sugar with the Rasberry. I used Bavarian Chocolate that comes in squares and chopped it down to melting size.
I found this recipe on http://www.joyofbaking.com/ChocolateTruffles.html
