Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this as a smash cake for my friend's son's first birthday. She decorated in the jungle theme. I really enjoyed making the mane of the lion. I think candy melts are so cool! You can do so much with them! I had a liitle trouble getting the eyes to look right but I finally got it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I tried to make this cake but before I start, I tried to make the curls but I just couldnt make them, so I tried to find the "how to do it" but nothing found it, I gave up and looked for another option.
