Noah's Ark

This is probably one of the most fun cakes I've made yet.  This was for a friend's baby shower - pre-baby.  (The couple now have a cute baby boy!)  My mom actually helped me a TON with making the boards for all over the cake.  Each board was actually made individually.  Although this cake looks great, there are a few things I will do differently to make it better next time.  All of the animals were fun to make, and yes, I know the turtles are missing eyes.  I didn't forget; time was tight since I made this cake in the Hat and had to drive the cake 4 hours to the shower!  When I got to the shower, the hostess had decorated in a Noah's Ark theme!  Funny, because we had never discussed a theme for the party.  My cake matched the decorations perfectly! :)
This was layered white and red velvet cake with buttercream icing everywhere else.  Of course it was topped off with fondant! 

All done!
