Noah's Ark Cake and Cupcakes

This cake was one of the hardest I have done to date. The client was hosting a baby shower for twins and the theme was "two-by-two". I started with an two 8" round cakes stacked on top of each other and then carved the cake into the shape of a boat. The whole cake was covered in fondant and the animals were made out of gum paste. I created the wood grain by diluting some brown gel food coloring and painting it on the fondant. Everything is completely edible!


This is what the cake looked like all set up with the cupcakes.


The client wanted to do the animal chocolate molds herself to put on top of each of the cupcakes. Less work for me! :) But all in all, I really did enjoy this order!

That is incredible!
Finally, I've carved out some time to set up a schedule for keeping up with blogs of important people. Yours is going to be a daily one. :-)
