Hunting 25th Birthday Cake

This two tiered cake was made for a friend's 25th birthday who loves to hunt. The 8" and 6" cakes are chocolate filled with cookies and cream buttercream.

The deer head was made from rice krispies and coated with milk chocolate to help keep it together. It was then covered in fondant. The antlers have wires in them to help with support and are covered in fondant. I was really hoping the deer would look real but it looks cartoonish. If I had my airbrusher up and running I could have layered colors to make it look real....maybe one day I'll have it working.

All the leaves are fondant and the acorns are shaped caramels with fondant tops. I was really happy with how the cake turned out.
