Hello everyone!! I'm new in cake decorating & we will be having a surprise baby shower for a co-worker (friend). We will have it on Nov. 7th but I want to start planning & having an idea of what I want to do. She is having a boy & said she will have an animal theme for his room. I've seen a few cakes in the gallery & they are so cute but I have no clue how to make the animals out of fondant.
Can someone help me out & pass on a tutorial or anything. I would really appreciate it.
Thanks in Advance!!
. . . aine2 has several tutorials on Youtube . . . http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=YJSRUlLZows&feature=user . . . and if you click the "more from Aine2" there are more for a dog . . . a chick . . . all of them are great . . .
Does anyone else have any other suggestions??
Any ideas on how I can make this cake. It is for a baby shower. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
. . . is there a wall paper involved (or a border) . . . or a quilt pattern . . . if you have access to any "images" you could always do chocolate transfers . . . http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=895833
If you don't want to make three-dimensional animals (I am not very good at them), you can find pictures of animals that you like, and blow them up to the size you want. Then you can trace them on parchment, cut them out like paper dolls, and place them on your fondant. Then cut around your paper doll shapes, and you have one-dimensional cut-outs. I hope that wasn't too confusing
It takes a little bit of time and planning, but because I just don't do well making 3-D figures, this works for me. Check out my Noah's Ark baby shower cake for an example.
I have a pic of a "jungle animals" cake I made in my photos. I did a fbct for it. I haven't any experience making 3D animals, so this was my best option.
There are candy molds available so youcould just mold candy melts into animals.
Hi everyone, i am just wondering what a chocolate transfer is. Does this mean you take a picture and color it in with chocolate???
If so, what a great idea!!!
Cute!!!!! Great job!!
Wow! Those look great for a first time!

7yyrt: Thanks for the information!!! I really appreciate it.
I just made a jungle cake (see my pics) that had some pretty easy animals on it. (I got the idea from another cake on CC). I've never made fondant jungle animals before, but because they are mostly lying on the ground, it made it a lot easier to make.
If you need any help let me know.
