I am attempting my very first "production" of baby jungle animals. I found this cake that I would like to recreate for a baby shower. Link is: http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1412863
Any help is advised. I have never worked with fondant or gum paste. Is this going to be too much for a first-timer? I am open to all suggestions. Thanks!
In my photos you can see a safari themed cake, and it was my first time making animal figures, though it wasn't my first time working with fondant.
I'd say it all depends on whether or not it would be a tragedy if you couldn't get your desired affect. If it is for family that is willing to accept a possible failure, then I say go for it.
I'd pull out some fondant and play with it to see how your figurines turn out. Roll some out and cover a dummy cake and see if you can get the feel for it.
You can also make your figures a week to a month in advance, it will give you a head start and keep your nerves down days before the party.
Hi! View our new safari cake photo for animal pics. We used RKT and fondant for these animals. Sitting animals are alot easier then standing. You can pm me for more details on how to make the animals if you want. HTH
I would suggest fondant as it doesn't get so hard and brittle. I think you can do this. Get your colors ready in advance and make a plan and GO FOR IT!
