Noah's Ark First Birthday Cake

This Noah's Ark cake was for a special cousin of mine on his first birthday.  The cake was carved from a vanilla sheet cake and stacked with layers of homemade strawberry buttercream icing.  Both tiers of the cake were covered with brown fondant textured to look like wood planks.  Windows were added to the sides of the boat, then I added pairs of animals to each of the open windows, the deck and the roof.  All animals were hand molded from fondant with some details drawn in with edible marker.  Lastly I piped on the message to the birthday boy and added waves surrounding the cake with blue cream cheese icing, textured with a spatula to create "water".
