,cMy friend asked me to make a cake for her good friend who has recently had a baby. She is a zoologist by profession and named her sweet boy Noah. So of course a Noah's Ark cake is the most logical thing I can think of. This is the most detail I've ever put into a cake and it took me about 8-9 hours, but I think it was worth it. I really liked the way it turned out.
The top layer is made out of Rice Cereal and the bottom is a yellow cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. The animals are made out of gum paste and everything else is Wilton fondant.
