Today we celebrated one of my close friend's baby shower. I made jungle theme cake for the shower. All the animals on the cake are made with fondant.
It is a red velvet cake with very little red color. After a lot of thinking finally decided to frost the cake with Cream cheese instead of Fondant. To keep the animals from melting with moistness of cheesecake, I kept wax paper underneath each animal while decorating the cake.
Cake recipe adapted from here.
Here are the pictures of the same.
Making of Balloons and Palm tree:
I made blue balloons as well. But my daughter asked me not to put it since it is not going well with the theme
