A friend of mine has a colleague who is taking a leave of absence to travel to Australia to get married! They wanted to have a party for her at the office, to have a wedding shower/farewell party. They requested a quirky kangaroo with the saying "Hoppy Travels" or "Hoppy Engagement." When Mike and I traveled to Australia a few years ago, we fell in love with the Aboriginal dot art. We toured many galleries looking at their work and were able to watch a few woman create this dot art while we were at the visitor centre at Ayres Rock. I found an dot art painting online that depicts kangaroo tracks, and thought it would be the perfect background for the quirky kangaroo. I tried to take a photo of each stage, not the best quality of photo, but it gets the idea across. They loved the cake, had enough for the next day, and successfully surprised and amazed their friend :-)
I had a lot of fun with this cake!
