Last weekends Birthday cake.
A returning customer asked for a number 5 cake for their son
in the theme of "Safari"
to go with the tableware they are having at his party!
(I love returning customers! such a nice feeling that they liked the last cake so much they order again!)
Don't get me wrong! number cakes are fine,
but they can look a little boring at times,
so I wanted to make this fun
..........and have got to say I really loved making it.
I have totally changed my mind about them now
and can't wait for someone to order another!
This cake was a triple layer chocolate cake
filled and coated with chocolate ganache
covered & decorated with fondant pieces
and hand modeled sugar tree, monkey, snake and crocodile!
All sat on a 14" x 16" cake board.
