I made this cake over the weekend for a little girl turning 5. I have to say, this is one of my all-time favorite cakes. I don't know that it's any one thing about it that I love so much, but all together, I just think it's perfect!
I am fortunate to have a sister who is a fondant figure guru. She helped me make the heads and bodies over New Year's while we were visiting and then I finished these little guys when I put them on the cake. This was one of those cakes that I really enjoyed doing, despite all the hours it took to complete. I'd say this was a 9-hour cake. Crazy, huh?
