Pet a cake, pet a cake

One of Mum’s friends asked if I could do a birthday cake for her Aunt’s 90th birthday.  It needed to be fairly traditional and relatively simple, so this is what I came up with:

Jessie's pets cake

This a three layer vanilla Madeira cake, filled with strawberry jam and vanilla buttercream, then covered with fondant.  I’m happy to note the continued improvement in smooth finish to the fondant covering.  The animals are fondant renditions of the lady’s pets.  Admittedly they’re not absolutely faithful replications, but I think they’re reasonably cute.

Jessie's Fondant dogContrary to appearances, Jessie does not have a pitbull…this is supposed to be a border collie…  Practice needed!!
