How to make it

  1. This is a large egg pan on top of a 13X9 pan, stacked frosted in between. I then frosted it with brown buttercream frosting and covered with a paper towel and used a 4" foam paint roller to roll over the paper towel to give it the 'skin' look. I used the small egg pan for the legs and put them partially inside sugar cones. The bones are fondant.
  2. I then airbrushed it in places with a darker color for the 'caramelized' look. The stuffing is cut up white and spice cake. The lettuce and vegetables are fondant and chocolate clay. Places in a foil roasting pan.
