I'm making a jungle cake for a baby shower this weekend. This will be my first attempt at jungle animals. I have practiced and did pretty good on all of the animals except my giraffe. The one I made turned out cute but he won't stand up!!! The weight of his body caused his legs to shorten and then stick out in front of him which of course caused him to end up in the sitting position instead of standing!!! I need help!!Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

GREAT QUESTION! I, also, am doing a "jungle theme" baby block cake for a baby shower this weekend. I am going to be making little figures too, and a giraffe is one of them. He (or she) was the only one I was worried about. Thanks for the links bashini!!! icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif
