We made a Jungle themed Birthday Cake for a 1st Birthday Party today. The two tier birthday cake was chocolate and yellow cake with buttercream icing. The cupcakes were a mixture of yellow and chocolate cake with Buttercream icing as well. The grass detailing going around the cake was made with Buttercream icing using a special tip. I think it looks very Jungle like with all the different lengths. The animals hiding behind bushes is the look we were going for with each tier. We wanted to create the feel of all the animals sort of peeking out of the bushes like a curious one year old would do!
The zebra print on the cupcakes with the letters B E N was a last minute detail we thought of. His mother pretty much left the whole design up to us and we hope we hit her vision dead on!
