Abby loves animals and wants to grow up to be a biologist. Of course her cake had to be animals.
I made the tree from fondant and gum paste and painted it with luster dust and vodka. The vodka helps the paint set.
The rocks and fondant covering are made from several colors of black, gray, and tan. The inside is filled with candy.
The animals are plastic because my grand kids like getting toys from the cake. We did a party for Abby with her sister and cousin who have their birthdays in the first week of March.
This cake turned out way better than I thought it would. Abby loved it. I filled it with little animals and candy to fall out when the cake was cut.
