Instructions
Bake cakes in ball pan and mini ball pan (requires approximately 3/4 of an average cake mix). Put red candy coating, whipping cream and butter into microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 25 seconds. Stir. Place in microwave for a few seconds at at time until all ingredients are warmed and candy is melted. Do not overheat. Remove from microwave and stir until glaze is shiny and all ingredients are well blended. Place cooled cakes on a cake drum, touching each other, and cover with glaze. While glaze is still wet, place eyes on head and brown wafers on body. Cover two spaghetti sticks with melted coating and lay on parchment paper. At one of each of the ends, pipe a round dot. Set aside. When red glaze on cake hardens, put some melted brown coating into a parchment bag with a tiny hole cut at the end and pipe the mouth. Cover two spaghetti sticks (each broken into 3") with melted coating and lay on parchment paper. At one of each of the ends, pipe a round dot. When candy coating hardens, push spaghetti sticks into head. Pipe grass around cake with tip #233 and green buttercream icing. Place icing flowers on "grass".
