1. Making the body

To decorate the bottom of the cake Paul makes up some small balls of sugarpaste using all the same different colours of sugarpaste. You’ll be pleased to know that the giraffe is actually quitre simple to make and is supported with a bamboo skewer and of course a little CMC  powder added to help strengthen the body.
