This panda is the life and soul of any party! He's a fun time guy, with a colourful bamboo collection.
The Rainbow Panda makes the perfect topper for any animal lover's cake, and the multi-coloured bamboo covering makes it a real attention-grabber. It's an ideal cake for a big party and can be adapted to suit any occasion.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to cover your cakes with a unique stone look, work with edible dusts, model a panda from sugarpaste, work with moulds, create fun decorations and much more! This cake is ideal for an intermediate or a beginner looking for a new challenge.

We'd love to see your take on Rainbow Panda - so make sure you share your photos with us on our Facebook page.
