Maybe put the giraffe on a cake circle and then support it with dowels.

If the giraffe is not made yet, when you shape it you could put bamboo skewers in its legs and have them long enough to touch your bottom cake board. That way, when you put the giraffe on the cake it will be supported on the skewers and not by the cake.
