Winnie the Pooh and Friends Baby Shower Cake

Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Cake for Baby Drevin.  The Client asked for an elegant Winnie the Pooh cake with bows and characters.  The orginal plan was to sculpt just the Winnie the Pooh and put images of the characters on the side.  After sculpting the Winnie the Pooh I decided to go ahead and do the other characters. The client was so appreciative that I wanted to go over the top with it.  It pays to be thankful :) I love the way it turned out. 

New technique I tried.  I have a little work on it, but I think it brings in that simple elegance to the cake.
I would like to eventually own a fondant diamond impression plate.

Doble asked why Eeyore was smiling.  "He is supposed to be sad", he said.
