Well, they followed my rules above, and this lamb cake still turned out looking… questionable. Maybe some people aren’t cut out to ice a cake. Look, there are classes you can take at most local craft stores, and they’re fantastic. Please, pretty please, for the sake of everyone, take a class.
They’ll explain the different types of icing and tips and how to angle it to create the wool facade. You can do this, I promise. You just need help. Serious help. You can also purchase edible eyes and noses pretty cheap at the same craft store, which will stop this whole creepy eye thing these cakes have going on.
