Can You Feel The Love Tonight?

Hello There!

I worked on a cake last week for my sweet niece Rayann.  Mommy said that she requested Simba and Nala.  So, I found out whether or not it was baby Simba and Nala or adult Simba and Nala and went to town.  The first thing I did was print out a picture of Simba and Nala.  I then laid a piece of wax paper over the top and traced the image with a permanent marker.  I put the original print out under another piece of wax paper.  I then just took my traced image and placed it over rolled fondant, and cut out each section.  I took the sections and placed them on top of my printed image so that I knew I had the placement right.  I started with the small things like the eyes and ears.  Then, I place the body over those in sections.  I place the complete fondant image in the fridge to harden.

I had my cake in the freezer.  So, I got that out and did a crumb coat and a regular coat.  After it had the icing on, I placed the image directly from the fridge onto my cake.  I then drew in the details with a food color/vanilla mixture.
