Dahlia’s jungle cake

Another first birthday cake this time for Dahlia. I am in love with the name Dahlia! The brief for this cake was a jungle themed cake with an elephant on top. I love making kiddies cakes especially making little animal characters. I took my inspiration from this picture from the jungle book. The cake was airbrushed first (Any excuse to use it these days) and then I added jungle leaves and foliage made from sugarpaste  to give a multi textured effect. At the last minute I thought something was missing so I made a little Dahlia flower for the Baby elephant to carry.
