Animal Themed Birthday Dessert Table (2176)
Using our animal kingdom birthday cake as inspiration, we created an entire animal themed dessert table for a 1st birthday party this weekend.
The 2 tier topsy turvy cake is the centerpiece for the dessert table and includes 3 animal print balloon cutouts to match the decor of the birthday party decorations. The top tier is covered in green fondant with polka dots. The front of the tier includes a cute stitched chocolate brown monkey along with a elephant at the base and a lion at the top. The entire cake was pistachio with pistachio buttercream.
The animal prints on the balloons included zebra/tiger print, cheetah/leopard print and giraffe. The cake includes white, blue, purple, green, orange and chocolate brown.
Cookies included letters for the birthday boy’s name and number one’s for the first birthday. The cookies were covered in a mix of colors to match the cake and the overall color scheme of the party. Similar to the balloons on the cake, we included the same animal prints on the cookies.
Along with the cookies and cake, we included a dozen coconut cupcakes with vanilla buttercream dyed green to matcht he cake. Each cupcake included fondant cutout animal face to match cake. Animals included a lion, zebra, tiger, monkey, elephant and giraffe.
As we also try to do every week, here’s a video of the dessert table:
