King of the Jungle Baby Shower Cake

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.
