A Baby Giraffe for a Baby Shower


This two-tiered cake was done for a baby shower,
where the new baby’s nursery theme is baby, wild, African animals, and the mom-to-be loves giraffes.


The square bottom tier is my delectable chocolate cake and chocolate butter icing, covered in white sugar paste and decorated with edible ink, hand drawn baby animals on sugar paste panels, and moulded sugar paste bows.
Here are the four panels before I put them on the cake:

Making the giraffe was a three day process, and I used several pictures of sleeping giraffes so I could study it from all angles while I was forming the sugar paste and then painting on the markings.

The proportions aren’t perfect, but I was very pleased with how it turned out.
