I was given a picture of one of his favorite engines and asked to do the cake using it.
I used the frozen buttercream transfer method again and this time did it a little thicker to make sure it would not break, and of course I got over confidant and held it from either end thinking it was safe and I broke it anyhow. But really, if I hadn't told anyone, no one would know. Just have to learn to keep my mouth shut.
The courses that I teach for Wilton are paying off for me, because I get to practice some of the techniques and keep them fresh in my head for when I need to show them in class. Instead of using the star tip to fill the whole cake in with stars, I did the bottom half of the cake using the basket weave method. The stars were used for the top half and I created the ruffled edge using the rose tip. I also had some royal icing flowers and leaves left over from the classes and used them as accents. So this cake has elements of the Wilton course 1 and course 2.

Even my mom said something about Simba looking a little anorexic. I had to laugh at that. It's certainly one way to describe it.
Not sure if I'd attempt this one again.
