Fondant Scarecrow is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I agree with a previous post that having actual instructions and not just pictures would make this easier to make. The pictures are wonderful but having written out instructions for the ScareCrow would be helpful. The cake is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this little guy for a Thanksgiving carrot cake. It was time consuming, but he turned out really well and I enjoyed making him!! I didn't do the checkerboard shirt, but the fringe wasn't as bad as it looks and it really turns out nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have only been cake decorating for a little over a year, but this scarecrow was relatively easy to make. It was also a lot of fun to watch the progression. I put it on a cake for a bake sale, and got a lot of compliments. If you can follow directions, you can easily do this. It can also be easily modified to make it your own. A little bit of experience is required, but not much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very time consuming but adorable when finished! Don't try this on a day that you are lacking patience. In the end, I got lots of compliments.
