Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: I made this cake for my nieces baby shower. The bottom tier is 4 - 10" layers of carrot cake. The top tier is 8" layer of chocolate cake. The cake is covered in fondant. The animals on top and on the side are made from fondant as well. The grass and leaves (all the green) is made from modeling chocolate. This was my first time using modeling chocolate so I didn't want to rely on it for the major components of the decorations.

I love this cake. The animals are so fun looking. The trees and grass are very well done. That bottom is 4- 10" layers tall? The animals are how tall? They are precious. They are all done so well. I am trying to learn to do figurines. I hope I can do as well as you have done. Any pointers?

Thank you! The 4 layers are only an inch thick. The animals are about 2 inches. The figures aren't that hard. You can do it. Just take your time. And give yourself time, don't wait until the last minute. That way you can fine tune the details. Have fun!
