I had so much fun making this little fellow! I hope you'll enjoy this tutorial. You can use it either to make a cake topper or a small cake. The photos show how to make a topper, but the step descriptions include information on how to make a cake. OK, let's start!


Use a marker to mark a line 2 cm from the top edge. 

If you are making a cake: you will need three 6 inch round pieces of cake, each about 1.5 inch deep. Layer the cake with buttercream or ganache. You want the whole cake (with the filling) to be 5'' deep (include the board or foam board if you're using one - see the description of step 9). Chill the cake for at least 30 mins in the fridge. Instead of making a line with a marker, use the knife (make a shallow cut).
