I'm not sure if this post belongs here or somewhere else but does anyone know of a good site for "how to" on making giraffes? I need to make one (this is my first time at a making a figure) for a cake topper and am assuming I'm going to make it out of gumpaste but not sure exactly how to do it.

Thanks for any help!

I did one on the jungle cake in my gallery, and made him sitting (which is much easier)...I used a toothpick in his neck and propped him up against a small glass while he dried. Not sure how realistic of a giraffe you were looking to make. I think I've seen a tutorial somewhere, and if I find it I'll post it. icon_smile.gif

Here's one for a standing one...http://www.cakeboss.com/giraffe.aspx
and there are also some on you tube if you search for gumpaste giraffe tutorial.
