Rated 5 out of 5 by Java's Mom from I made a giant squirrel using the large bear pan - not a small squirrel. Making the body of the squirrel was surprisingly easy. The trouble I had was with the tail. I couldn't get the tail to stand up. I tried a Rice Krispie tail, a sugar cookie tail and even granola bars pushed together with tooth picks. Nothing would stay standing! I eventually gave up and bought a feathery concoction on a wire and used that instead. Except for the tail trouble, the cake was a huge success. It was my first 3-D cake and I can't wait to try again!
