Design Inspiration

My nephew loves The Lion King so a safari theme seemed appropriate for his party. It was just family so we kept it simple.


Project Details

I made the cake, a couple banners, chocolate covered animal pretzel sticks and jazzed up some styrofoam cups,

Favorite Items

The safari cake. It was my first attempt at a cake of this caliber!

And I just love the paper mache giraffe. I found it at Deserres on sale and spray painted it white. This one's a keeper!


When making the cake my sister kept telling me to just have fun and not stress over making things perfect. That's hard to do but I did try to heed her advice... It helps to have a 4 year old little helper. You learn to just go with it. =)

    The cake’s too cute for words! I bet the little big boy had so much fun with her auntie taking care of his party details.
