The focal point of Martha Stewart's granddaughter's first birthday party was the dessert table, where three cakes covered with marzipan animals stole the show. From monkeys and lions to elephants and penguins, each cake represented a different environment and was embellished with the appropriate animals — jungle, polar, and woodland. Martha's easy-to-follow instructions make replicating the marzipan animals a cinch.
