Jungle Themed Baby Shower Cake

This cake was a created for one of my husband's coworkers - her nursury theme is jungle themed so I designed the cake to coordinate. This is the second cake I made to celebrate this little baby's arrival - the first cake's design was our popular Sassy Circles with sugar molded booties. The cake colors are ivory, yellow and green - they are waiting to find out if they're having a girl or boy. The cake is an 8 inch and 10 inch which serves approximately 45. The top tier was white sour cream with strawberry mousse filling and the bottom tier is double chocolate sour cream with cookies and cream filling. The elephant, monkey and giraffe and hand-molded with fondant - my favorite is the monkey.
