One more birthday is coming and I am happy to try some of my new ideas of cake decorating. This can be a Jungle Birthday Cake for a boyas well as for a girl. As always I make all my decorations with marshmallow fondant, which I find very easy to make and very good to work with.
Also I tried to make chocolate marshmallow fondant to get real and tasty brown colour. I melted some chocolate added a bit of butter and marshmallows. It all melted together and turned into a beautiful and so tasty fondant. But to get fondant out of it I had to add some powdered sugar. This kind of fondant, made with chocolate, is so easy to use because it doesn’t stick to your fingers.
For the Jungle Birthday Cake I am going to bake two cakes, one bigger and one smaller to make a two tier cake. I need it to be a two tier cake to make a beautiful waterfall with some fish and a crocodile in it. Also there will be some little rocks around it and green grass.
On the very top I am thinking to put three palms and two cheeky monkeys. I also made an elephant, a giraffe with little blue bow and so cute hair, I just love it! and a lion to decorate this birthday cake.
To cover the bottom lines of the cake I made lots of marshmallow green leaves to make the whole picture more colourful and bright. I’m absolutely in love with all these fondant jungle animals, they turned out so cute.
