Jungle Themed 1st Birthday
Monday, February 22, 2010 at 12:42PM

I have a bit of a cold today, so this post will be short, but I wanted to share with you the pictures from yesterday's cake.  From top to bottom: 6" Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Buttercream, 8" Strawberry Cake with Vanilla Buttercream, & 10" Chocolate Cake with a Peanut Butter filling & Vanilla Buttercream.  The Chocolate & Peanut Butter was outstanding, if I don't say so myself.  All three layers were covered in Chocolate Fondant in varying degrees of color.  

The leaves, vines & animals were all modeled from fondant using the party decorations as inspiration.  Unfortunately, the scale of my animals didn't quite correlate correctly with the size of the cake, but it all came together in the end... even if I was an hour late to the party.

I'll leave you with a couple of detail pictures of the Jungle Animals, they were so much fun to make & I am really proud of the finished product... I'm actually quite smitten with the Zebra.
