Winnie the Pooh version 2

This is a hand sculpted Winnie the Pooh bear.  Version 1 seems more rectangular.  I have more practice  and experience carving so this is more contoured instead of cubic like.  In this version I used Wilton tip 21 and he is shirtless.  Its easier to put on his shirt before the head is attached.  Finish piping out buttercream on Pooh's body.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until frosting is set.  Cover the area where his shirt is going to be with thin rolled out red fondant.  Refrigerate once again for 30 minutes.  Take out of the fridge and cut out the desired shape for pooh's shirt.  Its easier if create a pattern to use to cut out Pooh's shirt.  Refrigerate until fondant is set.  Take out of fridge and attach the head.

I made the head out of cereal treats with a circle carved out at the bottom of the head so to keep the head attached to its body.  BBQ bamboo sticks can also be pushed through the head and to the body for added support.  Pipe buttercream on the head.  Make eyebrows, eyes, ears, and nose using black fondant.  Use royal icing to attach the ears.  Stick 2 coctail toothpicks at the bottom of the ears.  Pick a spot on top of pooh's head and pipe out royal icing.  Lay down the ears.  Do the same on the other side.  Attach all parts on Pooh's face.
