Deer Stamp Cake with modelling Chocolate Doe

Made for a Deer farmer who gets stamps made with their deer on them, the doe is made from Modelling Chocolate the painted & dusted, the stamp is heavily inspired by Royal Bakery’s aeroplane stamp but made to match the NZ post stamp as shown(Cloud made using tutorial bought from Royal Bakery), a huge thanks to Sarah from “The Cake Tin” who lent me her cutter to make the grass , great to have such an awesome cake buddy in the same town <3

Cake Flavour: Devils food Chocolate with Dark chocolate ganache

Awesome how did you get the deer so perfect?
& what is the grass cutter & what did you use to make edges of stamp?

Ciccio ...

Thank Kiwicakebloke for the deer I made a mould using Silicone Plastique unfortunately moulds this deep don’t work that well with modelling chocolate so then I used what looks like a paintbrush but has rubber end to make indents deeper & smooth out also had to remove antlers as deer I used was a stag so had to remodel head a little, used flesh toned Chocolate earth modelling chocolate with a little dark brown added to it then brushed it with flesh coloured petal dust, black around the mouth & used white americolour gel to paint in ears under eyes & under tail, superblack mixed with Tequila(didn’t have vodka) to paint hooves
Grass cutter is a Fmm strip cutter from Kiwicakes http://kiwicakes.co.nz/kiwi/product_info.php?products_id=6284 and the edges of the stamp are using this set http://kiwicakes.co.nz/kiwi/product_info.php?products_id=6286
Hope this helps :-)

Toni (White Crafty Cakes) ...

What a perfect design. Not only is the deer so adorable, but you have made an amazing landscape. Love the way the background mountains are a softer color that makes them look so far away The little tree, fence, and grass are all the perfect touch!
