Animal Baby Shower Cake For Boys: Submitted By Reader - Angela
I first made a cream cheese pound cake so I would have a solid base to support the fondant and the animals.
Then I used store bought fondant on part of the cake in the interest of saving some time.
And homemade marshmallow fondant on the other parts, such as the animals and the weaving on the bottom layer.
The bottom layer is a 10" x 10" x 2" square cake, and the top layer is a 6" x 3" round cake.
I love the contrast of using 2 different shapes of cakes. It is as if the top round cake is sitting upon a platform.
I covered the bottom square cake in white marshmallow fondant and then weaved multiple pastel colored strips into a basket weave over the white fondant.
After covering the top layer with baby blue fondant, I set it on top of my bottom layer and added hand rolled balls that I made by combining the left over strips from basket weaving.
I mixed it only partially to get a marbled look.
The top layer ended up covering almost all of the weaving that took nearly an hour to do.
I didn't think about it enough to figure that if I put a 6" round on top of a four inch square that I would only have 4" showing of the bottom layer.
It was originally going to be a "Noah's Ark" theme but I ran out of time to duplicate the animals which I made a day or two before with fondant and left out to dry.
The baby's name is on flat square block pieces that I made with gum paste and then placed them on silver wire at varying heights in front of the ark figure.
This is only the fourth fondant cake I have made and out of all of them, this baby animals cake is my favorite!

This baby boy animal cake was my first fondant cake!
I used my 16 in round cake pan for the bottom layer and an 8 in round for top layer.
I bought some fondant and rolled it out. Then I placed it on top of both layers separately.
The fondant was tucked under edges of the cakes and I stuck candy dowels in the bottom layer cake to hold up the top layer.
I made my animal cut outs with mini cookie cutters and my son helped make the balls around the outer edges.
With a paintbrush, I lightly brushed a bit of water onto each fondant cutout and ball and placed them on the cake. This helped them adhere to the cake a little easier.
I brushed the cake with edible shimmer dust (disco dust) and used a tapestry needle to "punch" holes on each animal to give them a sewn look! Everyone loved it!
I impressed myself with the fondant!
It was actually easy to use!
Oh, and the baby on top was made with fondant too! I did some internet research on what I wanted it to look like.
