Giraffe cake

I love this website, and I must say this Giraffe Cake was totally inspired by it!

I also love to make birthday cakes for my daughter. This year was all about the giraffe. :)

This is a white lemon velvet cake made in a "tunnel pan". I put lemon curd mousse in the middle and iced it with buttercream. The top layer is white lemon velvet and chocolate, also filled with the lemon curd mousse.

The decorations are made using candy melts that are piped on in reverse with a pastry cone. (also found here, on this site.) There are giraffes in green, pink, yellow and purple surrounding the cake. Small ones were also made to decorate the cupcakes.

The cupcakes were also from scratch and were white chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough, Oreo, vanilla, and chocolate creme filled..all with buttercream icing.

This cake was WONDERFUL!!!
Not only was it delicious, but, aside from the birthday girl, it was the star of the day!
What a hit! And what a fabulous mom to bake such a delight for her little girl.
