I am doing a cake tomorrow and have this picture in mind. It is for a Giraffe Award for a co-worker. I have an idea of what I want to do. It will be on a 11x15 sheet cake.

I just wanted to see other's opinions of how to accomplish this theme with a african sunset and giraffe.

Thanks
LL

Well. I like the black but didn't want to make everyone eat black BC icing.

Bye the way...My name is Felicia too.

I'd do it in layers. Start with your yellows and oranges. Then put the sun and the rays on, then the hills. On top I'd do the giraffe and tree as black fondant--this would get around the objection to black BC; fondant is easier to pick off if you don't like it, and you can buy it pre-colored.

I am also struggling with the grass. I don't know if I want to use the grass tip..or just make black grass out of fondant. I would like it to look like it has movement. (If that makes sense).

If you want that sense of movement, use a single round tip, not the grass tip, and let the strands overlap, so they're not all going in the same direction.

Good idea about using the round tip.

Thanks feliciaangel. I probably will start with dark chocolate and add some black so it won't be as bitter.
