Zoo Themed Cake
I had a request for a 2-tier zoo cake. The customer was planning on adding the zoo animals from the birthday boy's toy collection. So, I decided to actually do a half of a third tier just to add a few more areas to add animals. I left a few open flat areas for some elephants, flamingos, and big cats (some of the little guy's favorites). I went ahead and piped in a couple of his other favorites, alligators and monkeys. I'm hoping to see a few pictures from my customer after the animals were added. The bottom tier of this one is raspberry cake with chocolate cream filling, the middle and top tiers are dark chocolate cake with coconut pecan filling. All frosted with vanilla buttercream with a few chocolate buttercream details.
