This would be an easy cake except for the arms. I created two arms by using heavy foil wrapped around a pillar to get the shape and size. Then I removed the pillar and pipped in the cake mix and baked. They turned out perfect. The only problem was the weight of the cookie. Once I put it on it ripped the arm right off. To fix I shortened the arm in half and put the cookie on he's knee and wrapped the arm around. Then I had to shorten the other arm. For transportation I'm going to freeze and pray.
