Made this cake for my niece who loves giraffes. I used butter cakes and the head is molded from Rice Krispies.
I printed of some pics side back front of a giraffe. This one was sitting down. Make the head and neck first using Rice Krispies. Don’t be scared if it’s not right – just heat it a little in microwave to soften it again, then have another go. I did this until i was happy with overall size the neck should be in sync with the body.
Then just make butter sheet cakes. Start carving until you get a reasonable body shape. I used some modeling chocolate for the legs.
Layer it with white chocolate ganache then I covered it in white fondant. Hand painted body marks with brown. Don’t forgets his mane and horns! I made these with fondant.
