It's a jungle out there

I was privileged enough to host my cousin's baby shower this weekend.
I also volunteered to make the cake.
Cake decorating is one of those things that I do for me... to keep my creative juices flowing.
I don't do it a lot.
I don't have time for it.

Back in high school and college, I had all the time in the world for art - drawing, painting, sculpting... you name it, I tried it.

But now... now I'm lucky to get to make my boys birthday cakes once a year... and now an occasional baby shower cake. :)

This was the first time I had ever sculpted anything out of fondant, so I watched some youtube tutorials to help me out (Yes. I am such a teacher!)

The baby's room is done in jungle animals playing sports, so I followed suit.

I was soooo happy with how it turned out!

I think Laura & Andrew were happy with it too.
(Look at her belly, isn't it cute??)


I LOVE to hear what your thoughts are on my leave me a comment. Tell me what's on your mind!
