Jungle Cake for Jayna

I was asked to do this cake by a mum at Ewan's school for her eldest daughter Jayna.

I wanted to do something a little bit different and modern. The cake was made up from a 2 tier yellow cake with chocolate & vanilla buttercream frosting. Two 9 inch cakes stacked, and one 6 inch cake on top. The Palm tree, rocks and zebra stripes are all edible and made from fondant. The palm tree trunk is an Oreo stick! I had to eat several since they were so delicate and kept breaking! Shame! All animals are plastic! I designed the writing to look like vine leaves and this theme continued around the top of the cake. Brown sugar was sprinkled around the base to look like sand.
