Jungle Baby Shower Cake

A friend of my daughter was throwing a baby shower for her sister and she wanted a cake that she felt she could deliver out of town.

We went with two layers of 9 x 13 sheet cake (not torted--2 separate layers) with a jungle theme to coordinate with an invitation. Apparently the unborn child has been called 'Bud' so we had fun with that.

Fondant animals that match the invitation are around the edges as are vines that I made with a clay extruder. Sparkly disco dust are on the elephant's ears and various other spots on the cake.

Chocolate with whipped chocolate ganache filling and chocolate butter cream. Lots of pregnant girls at the shower who love chocolate apparently!

Question about animals
by: Chris T

How did you cut out your animals? I haven't been able to find any similar to your elephant and I love this and so does my sister who wants this for her cake.

It's good to see a nicely decorated sheet cake instead of just tiered cakes which not everyone can do. Love the vines and the cute animals.

Welcome to the Jungle Cake

Welcome to the Jungle Cake

Welcome to the Jungle Cake

Welcome to the Jungle Cake

This cake was one I designed for a friend's daughter who wanted a jungle theme for her baby.

The cake is two tier and each cake was layered and filled with buttercream. The outside of the cake was made from purchased fondant and tinted to color. The top half of the cake was designed after a jaguar and the bottom after a zebra...the two animals i did not display on the cake itself.

The four fondant animals were handmade and placed on the cake after drying for a week. I had thought about going with a regular round sign for the caption but then decided last minute to make a tree because i thought it suited the theme better.

The tree sign was also made fom fondant with a skewer in behind to hold the fondant and left to dry before placing in the cake.

The top cake was made from a 6" cake pan and the lower cake from a 9" cake pan.

Jungle theme shower cake

For this jungle theme shower cake

I made a 6 inch round cake for the top layer and a 9 inch round for the bottom.

The base is covered in fondant with an alligator skin imprint. The animals were made from fondant/sugar gum combo. Dusting powder was used to enhance them.

Palm trees were also made of fondant/sugar gum.

Wire was used in the middle of the tree to make it curved.

Tiny triangles were individually placed to make the tree have its texture.

The palm trees on the cake were made of butter cream frosting with the palms made of royal icing.

I stacked the round cakes on top of each other and frosted, baby shower was for girl so wanted to add girly touch to it so did the edging in pink.

The polka dots are Necco candies, the jungle animals I got out of the scrap booking/fabric department they are made out of wood and felt.

The palm tree on top I made out of index cards just drew palm tree and cut out and colored and made it look 3D.

Scrubba Dub Dub Jungle Baby Shower Cake

Scrubba Dub Dub Jungle Baby Shower Cake

This was a 12 inch cake that I carved to make it more oval. I covered in frosting and then in Marshmallow Fondant.

I then cut an oval at the top of the cake and took that fondant off. Then I rolled what was left down to create "sides" to the tub.

The water coming out of the faucet was poured sugar. Normally it should be clearer, but this was my first time working with it so mine came out a little to dark. The water in the tub was tinted gel icing (just a dab will do ya!).

The Elephant, Giraffe etc... were all made from modeling chocolate (melted choc. with corn syrup. There was a dowel in the elephant to keep him in place, and also a dowel in the giraffe (for the same reason).

I rolled out black and white fondant and used my smallest square cookie cutter to cut out the flooring. I alternated the colors to give a more flooring look.
