I made this Giraffe for a friend’s baby shower. He turned out so cute I just love him! It was actually quite easy. I just found the picture I wanted on the internet and copied it using my roll-out icing recipe. There are only four colours I had to make. I put him onto a round white platform so that he stood out from the dark colour of the mud cake.

A quick tip is to use tweezers when placing small pieces onto the figurine. You can buy special cake decorating tweezers on Ebay for a couple of dollars. And remember don’t put your figurine in the fridge or it will sweat. You can freeze the figurine and when you bring it back out again if it has beads of water from condensation just leave it out to dry. If you are in a hurry put it near a fan.
