~ Cake is on page 129 & 132 in "The Dessert Bible" by Christopher Kimball
~ I made the top of the stump & leaves with pie crust.
~ Used store-bought lemon curd for the filling AND gave the whole cake a "crumb coat" with the lemon curd (worked well!).
~ The gummy snake came from nuts.com: HERE.
~ I used Lemon extract in place of Lemon Oil.
~ The night before the party, Dad & Mom helped me make the marzipan mushrooms! (we found the marzipan at IKEA)
~ I made lightly sweetened stabilized whipped cream: 1c heavy whipping cream, 1/3-1/2c sour cream, about 1/2 Tablespoon powdered sugar & about 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
