Homemade Giraffe Birthday Cake

This Giraffe Birthday Cake was for a friend's little girl. It may not look it on the photo, but this was really a tall horse, more than a meter in length.

I used sponge cake that I cut up to form the basic design. I cooled the cake to prevent crumbling and gave it a crumb layer of butter icing before I started on the top layer. I used choc discs and licorice to decorate. This was GREAT fun.

Giraffe Cake

My daughter wanted a giraffe cake for her birthday, so I went with a safari theme. A giraffe and lion was made. The giraffe cake was a french vanilla cake with butterscotch chips. The frosting was store bought and colored.

The picture of the giraffe was done freehand by my husband and then I piped the entire giraffe with flower piping.

Tip: Decorating cakes I find to be easier if they have been frozen.
