Baby Jungle Cake

Baby Jungle Cake

I made this Baby Jungle Cake for a friend that I work with.

She had a jungle baby shower theme. I replicated the animals she had on a quilt.

I molded them from fondant. The palm tree is also fondant. I had so much fun making this cake. I made the animals a little in advance then constructed the cake.

For the palm tree, I rolled fondant into a log then stuck a dowel rod through it. I stuck it into the top of the cake then used scissors & cut the bark on the sides.

The leaves were made from the Wilton leaf press. She really enjoyed the cake so it was a success!

Jungle Cake
by: Marcella

What an awesome design! Clever to copy the animals from a quilt - they are absolutely adorable and look like a little one could just pick them up and play with them. Who could ever settle for a plain old sheet cake if they have seen one like this jungle cake. Only wish you could keep the cakes forever and not need to cut them up. This is a true work of art.

WOW and WOW the animals are so adorable and cute for a baby. Imagine making them to match her quilt? How in the world does this girl come up with these ideas. The new mom should have been so happy matching nursery items and a baby cake too!

Wow!!!!
by: Anonymous

Another creative one by this baker. She must spend hours creating the themes, her customers must be ecstatic to have her one-of-a-kind cakes.

The animals are adorable, and the palm tree idea is simply amazing. Fondant gives it a smooth touch, the colors are vibrant and eye catching. A masterpiece that I am sure the new mom enjoyed.

And, how creative to match it to her nursery theme. And by having each layer being a different flavor, I'm sure the shower guests each had something they liked.

Very creative! Very detailed! A winner.
