my friends and i made this alligator cake for someone's birthday.
why alligator?
well,
when asked what her favorite animal was,
she replied
"..uhh..i dunno..alligator?"
..and this is what we came up with!








Basically all we did was cut a large sheet cake into different shapes for the body, legs,head and tail using a few pictures we found online. We made a white cake mix, and swirled green food coloring into it so when she cut the cake open, there was an extra surprise! Then we frosted it with green, and decorated him as you see here.

her favourite animal sure is a meanie but your cake is so lovely and does not seem mean at all, he is lovely, I take it that its a male alligator? *giggles* with all this baking and stuff it looks to lovely to eat ... congrats your cake came out so well :)

It's so cute! I now feel the desire for my friends to bake me an alligator-shaped cake.

Good job, it looks wicked yummy! :D
