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!
