A friend of mine asked me to make cupcakes for her daughter who's in college studying to be a zoo vet. She wanted a few zoo animals in fondant and the rest of the cupcakes in buttercream. I thought about what I wanted to do and then came up with the idea to give all the little fellas "ailments." Not sure how big the photos will be on everyone's screens (all 5 of you that will ever see this), so just in case you can't tell, the lion has a thorn in his paw (I think the rest of them are pretty obvious). Cupcakes were triple chocolate - chocolate batter, filled with chocolate cream, and covered with chocolate buttercream. White cupcakes were WASC with whipped caramel buttercream. Thanks for looking.
