Hey Ladies, I need to make an explorer cake for this weekend, and I know she wants like butterflies on it and like a magnifying glass and maybe some other bugs... but I only get Dora the Explorer cakes come up if I search anywhere for Explorer cakes... So any thought of what I could do to make it look more Explorerish (lol is that even a word??) I want to make it a 2 tier cake, probably gonna do it in fondant.. any help of what I could actually decorate the tiers with, color, and design I would greatly appreciate it!! Her color of her invites were like a tan with red lady bugs and green leaves.... if that helps any!! Thank you in advance!!!

A few things that come to mind:

butterfly net
jungle vegetation
note book
safari hat
bug spray

Hope that helps a little.

I'm picturing a yard scene with a little girl looking at a ladybug or caterpillar through a magnifying glass...maybe some flowers and more ladybugs (or other bugs) all over the cake

Or to use Nanikins' ideas, have the little girl exploring bugs in the jungle with a safari hat instead of in a yard...

how about making it look like the forest floor on the bottom tier and the jungle canopy on the top tier adding the bugs and butterflies, nets and glass in various places, topping it with a girl in a safari outfit icon_smile.gif
