Follow the ingredients and recipe for the vanilla cake in the Feb 2010 blogpost.
Whipped Cream Frosting:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp powdered gelatin
4 tsps water
4 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Refrigerate the mixing bowl and beater for at least 15 min. In a small heatproof measuring cup place gelatin and water. Allow to soften for 5 min. Set cup in a pan of simmering water and stir occasionally until gelatin is dissolved. Remove cup and cool to room temperature. Gelatin must be liquid but not warm when added to cream.In the chilled bowl beat the cream and sugar just until traces of beater marks begin to show distinctly. Add the gelatin mixture in a steady stream beating constantly. Add vanilla and beat just until stiff peaks form when beater is raised.
Decorating The Cake:
To give the cake a jungle look, use green colored edible granulated sugar and spread it evenly over the upper half of the cake. Use any sort of chocolate toppings for the lower half of the cake and spread it evenly. Then place the madagascar cake toppings over the cake.
