Constrictor Boa

This cake was for such a sweet kid turning 9 y/0, Ian, who was absolutely positive that I could make a cake snake that looked like a Red Tailed Constrictor Boa. Such faith in me …and such pressure! LOL

There wasn’t much materials or tutorials online that I could find to make this, but I did have a giant photograph of the snake in its natural habitat which I tried to copy. I also tried to incorporate his name in the scene setting.

The boy freaked out when he saw it… and his momma almost cried … which, I guess was good???! :D
