Cute birthday cake

I am totally in love with my latest cake. This cake was for Emma who just turned 2. When Judy (Emma’s mum) ordered the cake, she included a photo of Emma’s favourite toy (see the first photo) and asked me to recreate it, as well as a monkey, for the top of the cake. Judy’s request was for an elegant and cozy looking cake, but she left the specifics of the decorating up to me. I got the outer colour by mixing 3 different colours together. After I had covered the cake, I started making the fondant figurines and decorations. I couldn’t really envision how it would turn out, but things started to come together pretty easily. I hope you like it just as much as I do.
