Elise's 5th birthday Animal cake

Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake My niece asked me to make her a cake with a cow on it and as I am VERY new to cake decorating I went straight to Craftsy and the class with the cow in it was on special so it was meant to be. Loved the class so easy to follow even for the very inexperienced and it gives you the basics to make other animals. I tried making my own fondant and it was a fail so went back to Satin Ice fondant mixed with some Gumpaste. I also used Royal Icing to give my grass pipping tip a first shot and was happy with the effect. The cake was white chocolate (turned out a bit dry) with Milo buttercream filling
