After checking out my collection of cake pictures that are safari-themed, you can see that each cake has some common characteristics. First, nearly all of the cakes depict an outdoor scene – some in the forest, others near a body of water, and others display hills and mud. Next, each of the cakes displays animals that are commonly found in the wild. Examples include elephants, zebras, monkeys, and even snakes. Many may even display lions and alligators.

When creating a safari-themed cake for a special occasion, it is important that you determine what type of outdoor scene you want to integrate into the design, and consider the types of animals that are common to that environment. We are sure that our pictures provided you with inspiration for creating your own cake, but should you want a little more assistance in terms of actual instructions, I've created the following to help you make a simple jungle-related cake:

Instructions for Jungle-Themed Safari Cakes


Items Needed:

  • Two Boxes Chocolate Cake Mix
  • One Large Square Cake Pan
  • Two Containers of White Icing
  • Green Gel Paste
  • Brown Gel Paste
  • Blue Gel Paste
  • Jungle Animals Topper Set
  • Three Twin Coconut Palm Tree Toppers
  • One Toy Safari Jeep
  • Cake Tray

Step 1: After you bake up and cool your cake, separate the two containers of white cake icing into three different bowls. The bowl designated for the green icing should be the largest, the bowl for the blue icing should be the second largest and the bowl for the brown icing should be the smallest. Once you have three bowls with the appropriate amount of white icing in each, you should add the green gel paste to one to create the main icing for the cake, blue gel paste to another to create the icing for the water on the cake, and brown gel paste in the last to create the brown icing that will be the dirt or mud on the cake.

Step 2: Outline an area on the cake that will be the body of water. Then, use the blue icing to create the water.

Step 3: Use the brown icing to create dirt and/or mud around the body of water on the cake, then, create dirt mounds where you will place the palm tree toppers using the brown icing.

Step 4: You will need to use the green icing to color the remainder of your cake. This is the grass of the jungle theme.

Step 5: Place the jungle animal toppers in the appropriate locations. For example, an elephant may be placed in the water, a zebra may be placed in an open area, and a giraffe should be placed near where you plan to add the palm tree toppers.

Step 6: Finally, put the palm tree toppers on the chocolate dirt mounds that you previously created. Then, place the toy safari jeep on the cake and that is the last step to creating a jungle-themed safari cake.

Now that you have examined each of the pictures of safari cake ideas and reviewed the instructions provided on creating your own safari-themed jungle cake, the time has arrived for you to take the helm and make your cake!
