Giraffe Baby Shower Cake to match bedding.
This is a baby shower cake to match a bedding set. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. It was a pain staking process as I acquired a new "tool" that I had to learn to operate in order to pull this cake off. If you have heard of the "Cricut", that's my new tool. It is intended for scrapbooking. However... I've adapted it to use with sugar paste so that I can cut ANY shape I want to put on the side of the cake without having to get custom cutters made or using a pattern and an x-acto knife. So... all the giraffe print from the bottom tier was cut with the cricut. The trees and giraffe on the top tier were also cut with the cricut. I spent most of my free time this week learning how to "make it work" but by last night, I could go to the computer, load my pattern, load my paste, and get my cut ON THE FIRST TRY!!
