Last weekend we celebrated the 3rd birthday of one of our friend's little girl. .
This year the theme was circus, so obviously a circus cake was in order to make. As much as I wanted to make a circus tent, which I think is a must in all circus cakes I really didn't have the time to go that way. I was making a very detail engagement cake that really took more time to make than I expected.
Any way, I decided to make a rustic buttercream cake with details of colorful sprinkles around it.
And as much as I am against performances of animals in a real life circus, what is a circus cake without some cute sugar animals??.
This is a mix of lion and bear, I couldn't get either one :)
And this little hippo dancer turned out too cute!!!
