I made this cake using several stacked tiers: first, a 10" round single-layer for the bottom.
Then, the Ark is made out of 2 small oval layers 5x7"), and a little loaf cake. The Ark roof is two graham crackers leaning together, and iced in chocolate butter cream. The Ark house and base is also iced in chocolate butter cream, and textured with a decorating comb.
The 10" layer is iced in light blue butter cream, and textured with a spatula or spoon to look like waves. I piped a C scroll border in darker blue striped with white, around the base of the 10" tier- to look like waves.
The animals are the fun of this cake and cupcakes! They are made with multi colored icings and mostly round (large and small) tips.
I use large round to pipe the base or head shape, and then use the little round tip to make facial features, like nose/nostrils, mouth, ears, and smile. Using a #3 tip I made the snakes, mice, and birds. I used a star tip and small round to make the lambs. The elephants ears are with a petal tip, #104. The male lion and giraffe has a tip 2 pull out mane.
The cupcakes were carrot cake iced in cream cheese and decorated with the buttercream animal heads. They were a hit at the party!

I made this cake using several stacked tiers: first, a 8" round single-layer for the bottom. Then, the Ark is made out of 2 small round layers (6") carved, and a little loaf cake shortened.
The Ark roof is two graham crackers leaning together, and iced in chocolate butter cream. The Ark house and base is also iced in chocolate butter cream, and textured with a decorating comb.
The 8" layer is iced in light blue and white butter cream marbled together. I piped a C scroll border in blue striped with white, around the base of the 8" tier- to look like waves.

The birds' beaks are small leaf tip #352. I used a round tip to make the pink pigs and grey hippos and polar bears. The male lion has a tip 2 pull out mane.
