Jungle Themed Birthday Party Cake

My friend’s daughter wanted a jungle themed birthday party and my gift to her every year is her birthday cake. Here is what I came up with.

 

Jungle Party Cake

Serves 25 – 30 kids

 

Ingredients:

1 baked rectangular sheet cake (any recipe you like or use my vanilla cake recipe)

1 round cake 6” baked

2 baked cupcakes

3 cups light green colored frosting (use any recipe you like)

2 cups dark green colored frosting

1 cup blue colored frosting

Any decorative sugar flowers or beads to decorate cake with

Handful of jellybeans

Sprinkles

A few small toy animals and tree to decorate cake with.

 

Method:

• Cover the baked rectangular sheet cake with the light green frosting.

 

• Place the 6” round cake on the back, left-hand corner of the cake and cover it with frosting.

 

• Stack two cupcakes on top of this and cover it with frosting.

 

• Using the blue frosting, create a tiny water fall and water pool using a small spatula.

 

• Line the edges of the water with jellybeans.

 

• Using the dark green frosting, decorate cake using a star Wilton tip to make the foliage of the jungle on the base and around the cake.

 

• Place the tree and the alligator on the cake.

 

• Place other animals all around the cake.

 

• Scatter sugar flowers around the cake to decorate.
