Jungle Animal Themed Cake & Cupcakes

Dear Cake Sweeties

A new friend I met through hubby came to ask if I could make a jungle safari themed cake for her son’s first birthday. This is the second time I have another go at the animal prints and I have improved so much, and very happy to have this opportunity to create this cute cake.

For Derek’s safari themed cake, the main inspiration was from a photo Mum Olivia sent me via Custom Birthday Cakes in UK.

To execute that theme we included several cute jungle animals included a lion, a monkey, a giraffe, a hippo and an elephant.

The top tier was decorated in giraffe print while the bottom tier was decorated in zebra print. Additional decorations include a final decision to add a palm tree, a palm leaf name plague and a few blossoms here and there.

Flavor and filling for the 6" were dark chocolate mud cake with dark chocolate ganache.
Flavor and filling for the 8" were dark and white chocolate zebra print mud cake with dark chocolate ganache.

We’ve also made two dozens cupcakes with eight designs for the topper i.e. elephant, lion, hippo, zebra, giraffe, monkey, tiger and palm leaf with number 1. Flavor and filling were our ultimate chocolate cupcake with vanilla cool whip frosting.

Furthermore, for the keepsake of all the animal toppers, I made a dummy cake that is covered in green and decorated with green leaves for them to put on and store for years to come.

Dear Derek

Trumpet, bleat, roar, chatter and grunt from all the animals saying happy birthday. Wishing you a Onederfully, Onederful birthday full of Oneder.

Happy baking
