Baby looney tunes cake

Remember when I made the cake for my husbands job? Well, the office secretary asked me to do her daughters baby shower cake. I was leery at first seeing as I've never done one for pay etc. Im not a professional! So I told her I would do it for cost as a nice gesture (aka if it bombs you still got better than a flat store bought cake!) So she told me it was baby Looney tunes, ok let me see what I can find. I wanted to make the cake and put some little figures on top ...tada no biggy right?....WRONG! Apparently the lil tunes are just now making a come back and figures are not exactly readily available ...or affordable! All "collector" stuff online. So...me being the over achiever=(really insane DIYer) decided to MAKE FIGURES OUT OF FONDANT! I made a practice figure right away and learned the flaws and wilted fondant ness of it. it was a green bunny. So to make the real ones I used gum paste...but they cracked...I need to try something to fix it GOOGLE I LOVE YOU!!! Anyway I came up with this cake and it was a TOTAL SUCCESS!!!! And from that a lady wants me to make a SMALL wedding cake. I almost said no but after getting a few details not for a lot of ppl etc im gunna go for it!!! Aaah im excited and nervous!! I meet with the lady wed. To get an idea of what she wants and make sure im comfortable doing the ideas she has in mind. Updates on that later.
