hello, i have a request for a baby shower safari/jungle themed cake with a twist. she is doing a sports theme as well. i was thinking a monkey, elephant, lion, etc all with some sort of sport related prop in their mouth or on their nose. it has to feed 60ish people so it'll be tiered. also, i'm unsure if i want to take the time and mold each animal, or if i could get away with a painted gumpaste cutouts? any ideas are greatly appreciated! thanks in advance!
Hi i made a safari cake before its in my pics, i painted the cake sunset style then painted on the animals in black was quicker than i though to do and was thinking you could then add the sports bits to there nose or leaning up against the trees or something
If you wanted to go OTT you could make the lions, tigers etc wearing sports outfits! for example, A lion in footballers stuff, a giraffe in rugby stuff, a seal in swim wear! etc etc
Hope this helps!
ybird, your safari cake looks awesome! we had discussed the overall look of the cake and she is looking for something more colorful and suitable for a babyshower. more "cartoonish" if you will. I have some ideas but there are so many great ideas out there, i'm wondering if anyone has found any pictures in the galleries here. I haven't seen many, but there are some i could make modifications to. thanks for your reply!
