i know many of you have been awaiting this post, and it's finally up! these are giraffe cupcakes i did for my friend mitch's niece, lucy, for her 2nd birthday this past weekend. i think they turned out pretty well actually! they are my buttermilk cupcakes with a plain buttercream i died brown. the necks are sugar wafers that are melded together with chocolate, then have chocolate and sprinkles on the backs of the necks for the mane. nilla wafers are the heads, with chocolate jelly beans for the ears. i was going off of the horse cupcakes from hello, cupcake!
