This as then covered with a lot of butter cream- it uses a pound of icing sugar! I left it plain for the tail and managed to make a sort of fawn colour for the fur with food colouring. I fluffed the icing up a little with a fork to look like fur.
The eyes are made from white and milk chocolate buttons, the nose is a jelly sweet and the whiskers and mouth are chocolate sticks! Because I don't believe in doing anything by half, I finished it off with some grass and flowers made from royal icing. I'm not sure that at only one James will really appreciate it, but Sophie definitely will!
