Safari Cake


Safari Cake

We celebrated my niece’s eighth birthday at the Rainforest Cafe, so I thought a safari cake would be appropriate.  There wasn’t much time to make it since my in-laws were in town, so I did a simple chocolate cake with vanilla frosting and Wilton animal figures.  The sides are dusted with cocoa powder using a powdered sugar shaker.  The tastiest part was the chocolate frosting I used for the writing.  I wish I had written down the exact recipe, but, like I said, I was in a hurry.  It went something like this though:  Lots of powdered sugar, lots of butter, lots of cocoa powder and a little milk and vanilla extract.  

Haley was so delighted at the ambiance of the Rainforest Cafe, where you sit among the trees and mechanical swinging apes and every few minutes there are “thunderstorms”.  They even put a sparkler in the cake for her.  The food is overpriced, but I felt it was worth it.  We had fun.
