I made this Lion Themed Cake for a dear friends son's 1st Birthday. He had a favorite Lion stuffed toy she wanted me to replicate. So this was the cake I came up with. The kids were super excited about the Lion cake topper as well as the cupcakes. It was a White Cake frosted with Butter cream & filled with Raspberry Butter cream filling covered in Fondant. Keeping my 3 year old away from the Lion topper was a task in itself ;-) I'm glad everyone liked it.
I made these cakes for the bake sale held at our church for the Prison ministry to help buy holiday gifts for prisoners on death row. I usually make volunteer to make just one cake, however this year I was told the no. of bakers participating are less than usual so I thot y not bake 2. Was an exhausting task though keeping a 3yr old away from the cake toppers.But I survived it!
My son loves singing Old mac donald & Bingo all day long, so I thought what better than a farm themed cake to surprise him with on his 3rd Birthday. His reaction to the finished cake was "wow Mumma , Braedyn likes it". It was the first time he complimented me for my cake, which made me realize how soon my little one has grown. He could identify all of the animals & giggled every time he seen Old mac donald hiding under his hat :-) This cake turned out way better than I had expected.
Last week was my hubby's birthday & I made this cake as a surprise for him. Asterix, Obelix are his favorite cartoon characters, so I thot wat better than making an Asterix Obelix cake for him. I was running short of time so couldn't make Getafix Druid. Everything in the cake is edible. The characters are made using Fondant. Would have made something more elaborate if I had more time. Anyways hubby loved it & that's wat matters most :-) Also my son was the most excited about this cake.
