Cassy Kreativ asked:
Ok, C-MAC! I LOVE all of your work, but (clearing my throat) this one is BEAUTIFUL! VERY well done! Now! The crumb on that cake looks so good! And they baked up so level. Do you want to share the recipe? OMG! I am drooling.
C-MAC answered:
Thanks for the nice comments Cassyb30 - you made me smile :) Actually, my 'big' secret is that I only use Duncan Hines cake mixes ! Depending on what I am making, I may 'doctor' them up a tad. Also, I always make pound cakes whenever I have to carve a shape - it has a more dense texture that is great for carving..... so the ark is all pound cake. You know, I have tried cakes from scratch but they are always dry. Also, I always freeze my cakes at least 1-2 days - I have found this adds moisture. Oh yeah, I always use those cake pan strips that you wet and put on the outside of your cake pans. They really do help cakes rise very even....I highly recommend using them.

how long ago did you do this and where do you live?
C-MAC answered:
Hi mrandmrsp ! I actually made this one 3 years ago for my niece's baby shower (for twins). I live in the Pittsburgh area :)
timdi5 asked:
How did you make the animals? Did you use a mold or animal crackers?
C-MAC answered:
I made the animals out of gumpaste then painted them. Some were free-handed and I used a chocolate mold for others.
