Cake by Lisa B., NSW, Australia

My son’s name is Noah so for his first birthday I was inspired by this site to make him a Noahs Ark Cake. I made all of the animals with ready to roll fondant using plenty of food coloring and imagination. It was really fun.

The bottom cake was a butter cake spread in blue butter cream and for the water and a slightly smaller mud cake above that for the base of the Ark.

I had no idea how I was going to do the top of the Ark until I was halfway through it and it just sort of came together. I used bamboo skewers to hold it all together. I used a brown fudge icing over the Ark. After placing the animals on it came to life. The kids at his party absolutely loved it.
