Paul introduces us to his cute safari style giraffe cake. A very fresh and fun cake that has so many possibilities for various design ideas and different models sitting on top of the cake.
This cake is perfect for birthday celebrations and could be altered to fit an event such as a christening.  This tutorial incorporates many different skills and techniques such as working with edible paper, cutting out letters, modelling work, dusting and airbrushing. A great cake for beginner/intermediate level and one that would be a great cake to add to your CV.

We would love to see your take on the Safari Giraffe Cake - please share your pictures with us on our Facebook Page!
