Jungle Themed Baby Shower Cake with Koala Topper
This jungle themed baby shower cake was designed to coordinate with the shower invitation. The tree decoration is made from fondant as are the animals on the side of the cake. The 2D animals are hand painted with gel food coloring. The Koala on top is holding a blue baby blanket and is made from gumpaste.
My friend Michele asked me to make this cake for her baby sister, Laura who is expecting a sweet baby boy named Reid in March. I have known this family for 17 years, so this was a special cake to make! The flavors are chocolate cake with classic chocolate buttercream filling per the expectant mother's request.
