  1. 1

    Assemble the cake rounds with the desired cake filling. Place the cake in the refrigerator for one hour to make frosting easier.

  2. 2

    Remove the cake from the refrigerator. Apply a 1/4 to 1/6 inch layer of orange frosting to the cake, using a spatula. Smooth out the frosting with the spatula to create an even coating.

  3. 3

    Place a large frosting tip into a frosting bag. Load white frosting into the frosting bag. Frost two quarter-sized circles in the centre of the cake, which will be the whites of the tiger's eyes.

  4. 4

    Place a medium-sized detailing frosting tip into a frosting bag. Load the frosting bag with black frosting. Squeeze out the black frosting to create pupils for the tiger's eyes, a nose and mouth for the tiger. Add stripes around the perimeter of the tiger's face.
