In addition, you’ll learn how to create upright ears and feet with minimal structural support.
In this lesson, Rachael shows you how to shape 3 dimensional objects to create even more depth to your character cakes by transitioning from cookie cutter shapes to hand molded objects like beaks, wings, and feet on this adorably cute little chicken. She also provides a variation of this design to create a rooster with a color change and a few more features.

She starts by demonstrating how to create freestanding modeling chocolate ears with no structural support. Then she shares a trick for shaping more complex characteristics like a three-dimensional snout without using a cookie cutter and offers up a few alternative accessories. And finally, Rachael creates two styles of paws for a more unique presentation as she assembles all the individual pieces to bring this kitty to life.
In this final lesson, Rachael shares a few accessories to add to your adorable character cakes. From a molded daisy and a rolled-up carrot to a baby chick and tiny mouse, these additions will add lots of fun to your character cakes.
