I baked this giraffe cake for my daughter’s 8th birthday. She was in love with giraffes. First I scanned her invitation that had a giraffe on it. I then blew it up on my greetings program.

I made two 9 X 13 cakes. Put them side by side. I put the giraffe template on top of the cake and cut around it. Freeze the cake, it makes cutting it easier. I frosted with frosting from grocery store. For the spots I got fondant. Put them in balls and rolled the little balls out. That made the variety of spot sizes.

This was a fairly easy cake to make compared to my past entries.
