I made the animals out of fondant. I cut them out with cookie cutters.
I used fondant tools to add details.
I painted spots on my giraffe with cocoa powder mixed with alcohol.
This is a clay extruder. It can be used to make strings of fondant. Here I am using it to make my lion's mane.
I cut the strings and put them around the face.
Here's my jungle before I added the leaves.
I decided it needed something else, so I asked mom to mix gray fondant. My helper Sophie and I made rocks. We put the leaves on too.
Here's my cake when it was finished.
Thanks for looking at how I made my cake!
