About this Bake

My mother loves giraffes, so this is the birthday cake I made for her. The trees are made from bread sticks and royal icing, the top layer of the cake is a sponge with fudge pieces mixed in and the base layer is a Victoria sponge cake.

Top tip

Plan your cake carefully, do not rush. Keep kneading your fondant icing to blend the colors and creases out.
