This cake was made for a baby shower with Noah’s Ark theme. The cake is a Strawberry Sponge Cake with Whipped Cream Icing as the mother-to-be, I was told, liked light cakes and fruits.
Since a sponge cake with whipped cream icing cannot handle any heavy decorations on the top, I opted with hand painted rolled fondnat. Each piece was painted with edible color and then cut out and assembled.
I have to give my wonderful multi-talented husband credit for drawing the giraffe, lion, and the monkey. They are adorable!
