My nephew loves The Lion King so a safari theme seemed appropriate for his party. It was just family so we kept it simple.
I made the cake, a couple banners, chocolate covered animal pretzel sticks and jazzed up some styrofoam cups,
More info on the cake including links to recipes are on my blog:
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. =)
