Imagine the awesome patterns if you dropped him off the table onto a big sheet of paper?
When I was in 8th grade shop class I used the terrifying band saw to cut out a cat shaped doorstop that my parent's still have holding a door open in their house. The next year they got rid of the band saw because it was far too dangerous. Last cat doorstop ever!
This cake makes me think of the book "Afternoon of the Elves" by Janet Talyor Lisle which I read when I was only 11. It's reminiscent of a girl in boots that are too big who spends all her time building houses for elves out of leaves in her back yard. But now she's all grown up and getting married to an equally elvin man and they are having a simple barefoot wedding in the woods.
This sweet baby bear is so helpful, telling you what time it is! And such a pretty coat, such lovely grain.
