Safari Cake

Safari Cake

I wanted to add more animals but I ran out of time.

My haggard self with barely 2 hours of sleep 😅😴

It’s Kyrie’s (my nephew) birthday today. My sister was supposed to order a cake from someone else (a pro) but I proposed to make it as a gift. I actually insisted because she wasn’t confident with my baking and cake decorating skills. Well, at least not yet (Haha!). I do understand though because I haven’t done a lot of fondant cakes yet. However, I really wanted to practice (Hahahaha!) and of course, I wanted to give something special, something personal to my nephew on his first birthday.

I was really excited to make a cake like this but nervous at the same time. I don’t know why I always put myself in a risky position. THANK GOD it turned out okay. The two tiers were chocolate cakes (no Styrofoam). The top tier was ill-proportioned because I had to cover some areas where the fondant crumbled a bit. I didn’t realize it would be too heavy.

I was pressured because my sister was always telling me to do it well. It’s not perfect but I’m glad, or should I say relieved, that my sister liked it. Whew!!! It took me all night to put everything together. I finished at around 9 in the morning. I slept for only about 2 hours so I could make it to the par-tay!
