Pink Giraffe Baby Shower Cake (Instructions for how to make flat royal images included).

Here's a cake I made for a baby shower a couple of months ago.

It turned out cute; however, the picture isn't great. I ran out of time and just snapped the picture in the box. I figure any picture is better than no picture, right?

Want to know how to make the giraffe out of royal icing? Scroll down, the instructions are right there!

Here's the baby shower invitation that we matched the cake to!

How to make the giraffe out of Royal Icing:

1. Find a picture of the image that you want to reproduce in royal icing.
2. Print the picture and then cut it out. (If you are making several you might want to print and cut several out). I made 4 giraffes and only one survived. They are VERY easy to break!
3. Get a cookie sheet out and lay the image flat on the cookie sheet. 
4. Rip off a piece of wax paper and lay it over the image. You will be able to see the image through the wax paper.
5. Pipe the outline of the image onto the wax paper and let it dry. Fill the outline in with the color of your choice and then add the details.
6. When it has dried, it will literally slide right off the paper. You won't even have to try to get it off. (If you have to try to pick it off, it's not dry).

Thanks for visiting!
