A Christening Cake with lots of animals

I made this cake this past weekend for a Christening. It is a 2-tier cake - bottom tier is 3-layers of chocolate velvet cake with swiss meringue buttercream and the top tier is 3-layers of vanilla butter cake with swiss meringue buttercream.

The cake is covered in fondant and the animals are all handmade with sugarpaste. My favorites were the giraffe and panda.

I made a sleeping baby in a tiny bed on the top. I actually guessed on the baby boy's haircolour when I was up late making the final details... somehow I lucked out as the boy did have blondish, red hair. Next time I will definitely ask my customer beforehand - I really could've messed that one up!

This cake is very cute.

If you made the baby bald, nobody would have complained about the hair colour! :)
