Such a fun birthday cake. This one was for my 9 year old. He asked for a camping and fishing cake. After much thought from Lil' E, mommy, and daddy, we came up with this cake. Lil' E told me he wanted a pond with jello and fish crackers, a tent, and a guy fishing. Well I am not good at all with making people so that one was out. Daddy put his two cents in and I am glad he did. He told me to push myself and do a pond with real water. Well I did and I even added a little surprise for Lil' E.
I was thrilled when my idea of having the campfire really burn turned out. All in all I LOVED this cake and it was so fun to do. He loved it too. I love it when my kids enjoy their cakes.
The cake was a chocolate and vanilla zebra cake, covered in fondant. Everything (well almost everything) was edible. The pond itself was not (for obvious reasons) edible.
