Always a popular children’s birthday theme, our safari birthday cake incorporates cute animal figures, the birthday boy and topsy turvy tiers.

Jungle and Animal Themed Birthday Cake

Safari Themed 1st Birthday Cake

For Shaan’s safari themed cake the main inspiration was from our animal kingdom 1st birthday cake from a few years ago.

However, while working with Shaan’s mother, we also incorporated design elements from some of our other cakes. The design of the “1” on this cake and the smash cake (not pictured) was inspired by James’s first birthday cake. The safari boy sitting atop this safari cake along with the fondant for Noel’s name was also another inspiration for Miles’s cake.

The top of Miles’s 2 tier topsy turvy cake is covered in light blue fondant with thin and thick stripes in green, brown, orange and yellow. A cake topper figurine of a boy dressed in safari gear sits atop the tie with a green block “1”.

Additional safari animals decorate the remaining tiers including a monkey, lion, elephant and giraffe. Much like the cake we posted yesterday, all the animals were celebrating with their festive party hats!

Flavors and fillings included coconut cake with chocolate buttercream and red velvet with vanilla buttercream. We delivered the cake to Montclair NJ for the birthday party celebration.
