Cutest Homemade Giraffe Cake
My son’s favourite giraffe that never leaves his side (TY Pluffies Tip Top Giraffe) cake that I made for his third birthday.
Materials: 1 10″ cake pan, 1 Betty Crocker cake mix, 1 jar white icing Betty Crocker, 1 pkg. Wilton white rolled fondant, Wilton frosting tip # 233, chocolate sprinkles, Wilton gel food colors leaf green, buttercup yellow, black, & brown, star shaped cookie cutter, Wilton alphabet cutouts, toothpicks, wax paper, powdered sugar.
Bake the cake and set aside. I took a picture of his giraffe and printed it out in black & white and traced it on to wax paper. Colored the fondant and rolled it out then cut out the giraffe , stars, & name. Iced the cake then laid the giraffe on. Using the #233 frosting tip I made “grass” around the cake and then threw some chocolate sprinkles on the sides ( to cover my not so great icing job). Laid one star down, put the toothpick in the middle, brushed a little water on to glue down the top star. Then brushed the back of each letter with water to glue down on each star. It was a hit.
I am totally a novice at cake making but each time it gets a little easier and its fun!
