Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this using a sugar cookie recipie for the tail and dipped the cookies in colored chocolate. I glued a foam block behind the cake to put the sticks in and it worked out fine with one exception. I ran out of cookies so next time i'll make extras to put on the side. everyone loved this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this cake. I did not have the fondant so I used cookies instead for the tail feathers. It looked really cute except the cookies were a bit too heavy for the tail. Luckily they did not have to sit too long because they were starting to fall out. I cut the cookies using a leaf cookie cutter (I could not find a maple leaf so I used a longer leaf). I frosted each leaf in orange, yellow & red.
