Giraffe cake (pictures)

Monday, September 26, 2011

My mom and I made this cake for my Great Aunts 63rd birthday. So with 3 cakes in one weekend, I'm shocked I lost anything this week! It really takes willpower to look at these and not eat a bunch of it!

Bottom layer: White cake with strawberry filling. Middle layer: Lemon cake with lemon filling. Top cake: White cake with chocolate ganache filling. We also had two more small cakes that were chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and cherry filling. All cakes were frosted with homemade buttercream, and they all had fondant except for the chocolate small cakes. The giraffe is all fondant, and completely edible.

    Thanks CRYS- we have but because I'm moving over an hour and twenty minutes away from my mom it isn't the best time to open a business. For now we are just doing it as a hobby and selling them to friends and family. Thanks though!

    Aimee, this cake is absolutely adorable. The two of you are very creative and talented. Have you ever thought of opening your own cake shop?
