You can create your own jungle-themed cake using this tutorial, changing the design to suit the occasion and type of party! For example, keep the cake a little more sophisticated for a 40th birthday but add the PhotoCake ‘cute jungle animal’ icing sheet for a child’s birthday party. If you are making the cake for a small number of guests, then design the cake around one deep tier.
