Topsy Turvy Animal Kingdom Cake (2019)
Last year right around this time we created this mommy-to-be baby shower cake for an expectant couple One year later they reached out to us to celebrate their son Deven’s first birthday.
For the party they asked us to coordinate the colors and animals for the cake to match the decor of the party. The 2 tier topsy turvy cake is decorated with several animals including a monkey, lion, giraffe and elephant all wearing their party hats. The lion at the top has the most important job which is ensuring that the green gumpaste number “1” doesn’t topple over.
The front of the bottom tier includes a rectangular plaque with Deven’s name in alternating yellow and lighter blues matching the party’s invite.
The entire cake was coconut with pineapple buttercream.
Happy 1st Birthday Deven!
Here’s another version of this animal birthday cake with a different color scheme. Atop the cakes sits a yellow giraffe next to a white gumpaste number “1”. The top tier is covered in blue fondant with stripes in yellow, white, and orange. On the bottom tier sits a baby blue elephant and orangutan.
Flavors and fillings included chocolate with vanilla buttercreama and polka dotted rainbow cake with vanilla butercream
