This has to be one of my favorite cakes. It turned out SO well. It was for a circus themed baby shower! I just loved how well the fondant animal pillars turned out, and the big top I carved and frosted for the top layer was great too! Although I don't think most people figured out it was a Big Top. I had so much fun designing and carrying out this cake. The only thing I would change would be to make the bottom layer bigger so the animals weren't quite so crowded. But arn't these animals just adorable! I was tickled at how well they turned out. So okay, I was up all night because I miscalculated how long they would take (I'm a perfectionist...), but they were SO worth it.
