This is a cake I made for my husband's birthday. I think it turned out well.

AWESOME! I love it. It looks three-dimensional (rather than just painted on) - is it? And if so, how did you go about sculpting it?

Thanks so much!
 And it is. I started with a round cake, cut down either side to make a sort of rectangle, cut the leftover pieces to make the nose, eyebrow ridge, and chin,sculpted out the sunken cheeks.  crumb-coated it, and then covered the whole thing with green fondant.  I used black fondant for the eyes, nostrils and hair. And then I used food coloring gell, a little vanilla frosting and some veggie oil, made a sort of paint, and used a really fine paintbrush for the details.

I thought it was going to take forever, but it only took about 3 hours, baking included.

HAha, Thank you so much. I was so shocked at how easy it was. When I started out, I was like,"um...I hope I can pull this off!".

But really , if I can do it, ANYONE can!
