Making the cake

I spent Wednesday evening getting Sawyer's birthday cake ready. Lemon-butter cake with lemon curd filling...

...and lavender buttercream frosting. Mmm...

I had this vision of doing a blue and white swirl fondant, but try as I might I just couldn't get it to work, so we ended up with plain blue. Hopefully my mind will be working out a trick while I sleep so that I can eventually realize my swirly dream.

Tinted bits of fondant many colors and used animal cookie cutters

Oh the poor, hairy zebra. I've decided to get some lessons on old-school cake decoration: pastry bag, tips, piping, etc.

I think the lion is my favorite.
