I created this cake for a man celebrating his 40 birthday. It was a surprise cake from his family. He is a hunter and just this past year had been on an African lion hunt and "bagged" his first lion.. a very big achievement. It was a bitter sweet project for me... I am a "tree hugger" and will stop traffic to move turtles off the road (yeah thats me don't hate me).. so it was sad for me but I respect the right of a responsible hunter and I wanted to do my best to create a great cake. I was very very happy with the end result both in the cake and our "sweet" lion topper that Melanie created out of rice krispies and fondant.
