Happy Birthday Dray! My aunt's grandson just turned one, and she commissioned me to make a Jungle Buddies themed Birthday cake. First, I had to look up what the heck Jungle Buddies was. Google images is great, isn't it. I found all kinds of party supplies for inspiration.
The plan was to make a 12x18 white sheet cake (requested), Wilton's snow white vanilla almond buttercream icing, and buttercream transfers for the shapes.
Transfers,...yeah that didn't go so well.
Here's what I came up with: ( I took the picture after I had decided to discard it, so there are some cake crumbs on it :D).
The problem with the transfer was: I couldn't get it to come off the wax paper. I guess I should have read this a little closer.
Oh well, off to plan b.
The thing is, plan b wasn't so fool proof.
I ended up free-handing the animals. I looked at the pictures, piped an outline, then filled it in with a larger tip.
I guess it didn't turn out so bad after all.
