Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I took the sculpted dog class for referencing fur and making animals. I used the T Rex class that I took last year for the elements of structure and tiering/staking the cakes. I grabbed a picture of peter rabbit online, enlarged it in illustrator to the maximum height that my fridge would accommodate then printed it out. I then used the reverse of that same page to plan out the cake's structure (see photos). I made my own marshmallow fondant and modelling chocolates. I used premade gum paste. And I dyed the cake batter pink for my daughter. Oh, it's also gluten-free. ;)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? figure out how to use photoshop/illustrator before designing a character cake. There is so much free stuff out there that you can use.

I've got tons of photos of the entire making-of process. It's a shame you can't upload more than 6 photos... Oh, and the cool part is that kids could "pick their own" modeling chocolate carrots from the carrot patch. It was a huge hit.

Nice cake and I love the idea od the chocolate carrots

Thanks! That specific idea actually spawned from panic. At the last minute, i realized we didn't have enough cake for everyone coming to the party, so i baked a small rectangle two-layer cake and had to make it fit narratively. So I thought of a raised garden bed and though the kids would love to pick the carrots. They did!
