Giraffe Fun For Little One

Back in March, I made some cakes for a special little girl, my niece.  She turned 1.  So, of course we had to have a smash cake.  Mom says she's all crazy about giraffes.  So, that's where I started from.

This little cutie became the topper for the smash cake.  I made him using the tutorial from here.  It is in a different language.  You can translate it to English.  But you really don't need to the images are self explanatory.  The only thing I did differently, was his little knobbys.  I rolled some fondant onto some shortened toothpicks because I wanted them to stand up more than in the tutorial.

I also made a bigger cake for the big kids.  The pattern was made with fondant, and the rest is buttercream.

Hope you enjoy it.

Your giraffe is so cute! In January, I made a farm animal cake for a one year old in our family. It is such a special way to be apart of their first birthday :)
