I adore a Dumbo themed cake it's just a perfect theme for a baby shower cake.
Dumbo's is such a magically story so there was lots of inspiration to draw from including some iconic phrases everyone remembers. One of which I hand painted on the board, it reads "Sent from Heaven up above heres a baby for you to love".
The bottom tier features Dumbo with his mummy standing outside the circus tent having a little cuddle, so cute.
I couldn't leave out one of my favourite characters, so the hard working stork makes an appears on the middle tier carrying his precious parcel.
Topping it all off my version of that gorgeous bath scene, with Dumbo splashing about in a water barrel. Well it is a Baby Shower cake after all!
All 3 tiers of this cake were a lovely chocolate sponge with a rich chocolate Italian meringue buttercream filing the layers. The middle tier is a 6inch 4 layer cake giving an extra bit of height and double the servings when sliced.
The top tier can either be made as a cake topper to keep, or the barrel can be filled with cake.
