Crafty Creations - Camping/Woodland Creatures Birthday Cake

Hello :)

Hope y'all are doing well !  Sorry I haven't posted in a while... Here's a little treat for you though! My friend Melissa knew I use to work at a bakery back in high school Blue Moon Bakery, Cary, NC (SOOOO GOOD) and also knew I was pretty crafty and asked me to make a birthday cake for her families camping trip. 

This was made last week kinda in a rush, so I apologized it didn't turn out better :( I was in Dallas 3 out of 5 days and had to work as well so it was a tough timeline, but it turned out well. My apologies for not taking more pictures of the process, as I said before, it was a little tricky trying to get it made in time .

The cake itself was 10" half chocolate cake with chocolate icing and the other half yellow with white buttercream. Basically picture two half cakes smushed together. I was too lazy to make the icing so I bought it from my local piggly wiggly, it tasted pretty good and was OK to work with.

Woodland creatures made out of clay

Melissa and her family had a great time and really enjoyed the cake ! It was fun to do and I really enjoyed making the clay creatures with Melissa :) Thanks for encouraging my creativity, oh FYI - Melissa is an art teacher so it always makes me nervous crafting with her because well, she's a professional :) <3
