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.
