This is a three tier cake all made with buttercream and fondant. The first layer (zebra) was white cake, the 2nd (leopard) was german chocolate, and the 3rd (tiger) was red velvet. This was my first attempt at "painting" on fondant, so that was my most challenging aspect the project. It ended up being easier than I anticipated. Thankfully. Since this is only my 5th fondant cake, I'm still quite slow, so this cake took awhile. Nothing terribly difficult, just time consuming.
