I loved making this cake for Stephanie and Maddox's baby shower. There isn't much not to love about a lion wearing a crown, palm trees, and polka dots.
I used marshmallow fondant for both tiers with chocolate marshmallow fondant (a new discovery) on top. For the palm tree trunks I decided to use Pepperidge Farm Pirouette rolled wafers. They were a lot sturdier than anything I could have created on my own and already looked exactly like the real thing. Plus, I got the chocolate hazelnut flavor so it's basically like Nutella rolled up in a crispy wafer.
It was a lovely shower. We even had a monkey pinata! Of course we didn't blindfold Stephanie.
