Adorable 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.

  1. please tell me more about crumb butter icing. I want to make a giraffe cake for my little girls birthday so would love to know how you cut the cake up and where you got the shape from. Thank you :)
