Zoe Fox introduces us to her incredible Toni the Tiger cake.
It's perfect for a party and would sit quite magnificently as a centrepiece amongst a banquet of food. This design can be adapted in many ways, and with the skills learned you will be able to create all kinds of animals.
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to: carve cake into a detailed tiger head, work with ganache, cover awkward shapes with sugarpaste, build up facial features with modelling chocolate, create fine detail with modelling tools, airbrush work and much more! This cake is perfect for an intermediate to advanced cake designer, and is a fantastic cake to have in your portfolio.

We'd love to see your take on the Toni the Tiger cake - so make sure you share your snaps with us on our Facebook page.
