Madagascar birthday

This next cake, also last Saturday, was for Mel's nephew Wyatt who turned 3 and is loving the Madagascar 3 movie.  His whole party was based on the Madagascar theme so we kept it going by making his cake a Madagascar cake.

This was a fun cake to make. Anytime it's as colourful as this cake, it just puts a smile on your face. This 2 tiered cake is chocolate fudge filled with cookies and cream buttercream. Details on the cake are all fondant and bordered with candy covered chocolate balls.

Mel made the characters for top of the cake. She did an amazing job with their fun poses and facial expressions, it just brought them to life and gave them personality.  They're made with gum paste with royal icing fros.

A big Happy Birthday wish goes out to Wyatt!
