I like the jungle theme idea. Is it for a boy or girl?

FMM have their strip cutters and one of the sets is Children's toys. These can be cut out of coloured fondant and attached around the side of the cake and then the name could be again cut out of fondant and placed down the top of the cake.

However if you can do flooding small shapes of animals or toys could be flooded and attached in the same way.

I did something similar some seventeen years,ago, my grand daughter is now 18 and it was for a class assignment. My only problem was I left the T out of Birthday, OOps.

You will have many years to use the jungle theme
as the little boy gets older

Good Luck.

I did a number 2 for my nephew and than i made fondant figures and placed them on top of the cake i think the jungle theam would be cute you could make the fondant jungle anamils and place them on the cake maybe some palm tees and around the sides of the cake you could do some leaves or maybe a leaf border or something like that. good luck thumbs_up.gif
