Due to my laziness, Pikachu's tail didn't last very long. I had made it out of gumpaste/fondant the night before, so it was not dry and started curving as soon as I put it on. The ears made it okay. I let them dry in Wilton leaf formers, I believe, and that gave them the curve. Oh, and the body and head are rice cereal treats covered in chocolate candy clay and then fondant. You can still see the lumps from the rice cereal which I don't like :(
Here is the birthday boy. I've known him ever since he was born. And before!! Happy Birthday, Eli!!!
