MethodUsing measurements in photo A as guide, cut out neck and leg openings from cake; discard neck. Trim off rounded cut edge of each leg piece; discard rounded pieces.
Place trimmed edge of each large leg piece against cake to form sleeves, attaching with a little icing.
Spread about 1 cup (250 mL) icing over top and sides of cake to mask and seal in crumbs. Chill until firm, 30 minutes.
Tint remaining icing as desired. (About 1-1/2 cups/375 mL to cover cake and 1/3 cup/75 mL for ruffle trim.) Spread over top and sides of cake. Decorate with candies as desired. Chill until firm, 30 minutes.
