This is made for a boy who adores lions. I was shown the boy's picture, his lion soft toy and a t-shirt that he was to wear for his birthday party. I incorporated all that into this cake.
I experimented with many 'lions'. Only this one resembles one closely. haha.
The main cake is not what makes me tired. As it took relatively little time. What tires me are 24 of these cupcakes. Here are a sample of 9 of them. It took me a long time to decide how to decorate them.
