Giraffe Cake

OCCASION: Birthday
FLAVOR: Chocolate Chip

Sorry it's taken so long! I've been having computer troubles, but here's the latest cake! Due to popular request, I have replaced my usual foil with plain white posterboard. Also, I will provide more description for each cake in my posts. This cake was for my brother's 24th birthday. It's a big inside joke in our family that he wants to have a baby giraffe, so it seemed entirely appropriate. I used yellow cake with mini chocolate chips so it had a giraffe effect inside and out.

Thank you to everyone who has given me support, advice, and feedback in the last few weeks! It really means so much to me!


P.S. Like the new header? It was created by blogger Daisha Sheets. She's a really talented web designer. Visit her site at!


  1. Giraffe effect inside and out! Nice idea!

  2. Cute cake! I love the extra detail to the inside of the cake. What a cute idea.

  3. Your cakes are absolutely amazing, and this one is especially cute (giraffe inside out! sqwee!). I also love the new header - very creative and colorful. The only adequate thing that comes to mind is that it matches the spirit of your cakes. I'd also like to add that the posterboard idea was brilliant and it puts more focus onto the cakes themselves.

    Keep 'em coming!

  4. Haha, I love this :) It's so cute!

  5. Adorable!! And I love that you had chocolate chips on the inside!! Very clever!!

  6. Thanks for giving me props.

    And now that I read about the choc. chips in the cake, I'm having a major craving. :)


  7. The best part of your blog is you can really see how much your talent has increased when you go back through your older posts to your newed ones.

    This latest giraffe cake could be at home in any upscale cake decorating book.

    Keep baking (and posting!)
