A Lion Cake for the Little Cub


My gorgeous little nephew Leo celebrated his first birthday a couple of months ago and his mummy set me the challenge of making him a lion cake. So here it is!  The mane is piped chocolate buttercream which the little fella just loved :-).  I'd been scouring Pinterest for ideas but none were quite what I was looking for so I ended up just making it up.

Here it is on the table with the candles etc. Mitzy Ritz the little black and white cat approved of her feline cousin.

Leo's mummy was happy so that is all that matters!

I've got another cake to show you in my next blog post. Been a bit rough with my health and managing work, especially in all this heat, so had to take a bit of a break from the cards for a while but hopefully I'll get to play a bit this weekend! Here's hoping :-)
