These giraffe and pig cakes were made for my daughter's 1st birthday. The theme was an animal party. They were fairly easy to make. I just followed the instructions that came with the animal cake pan I had. Everyone loved them!

My teen daughter loved owls, and we needed a big cake for our big family. I didn't have the supplies needed to pipe icing, so instead I decorated the cake with food items. See if you can recognize them!
