Use a pastry bag fitted with a small round tip to pipe a small bead border along the bottom of the cake. Make different colors of brown fondant by mixing different amounts of brown and white fondant together. Using the medium brown fondant, cut a large oval for the face and circles for the ears. Use the light brown fondant for the inner ears and facial constrasts and the dark brown fondant for the eyes, ears, and mouth. Put all pieces together with piping gel and attach to cake with piping gel.
