Have fun designing your own birthday scene around Mini Birthday Assortment Dec-Ons® decorations...just add your own custom characters!

1. Trim both edges of three strips of Safari Zebra Designer Prints™ decorations with the scalloped blade of a pastry wheel.

2. Spray trimmed strips with Blue Liquid Airbrush Color and let dry for no less than 15-20 minutes.

3. Mix six batches of icing:
--grey using a touch of Coal Black Liqua-Gel Color 
--black using Coal Black
--dark yellow using Egg Shade Airbrush Color 
--red using Red Airbrush Color 
--blue using Blue Airbrush Color
--flesh tone using a scant amount (1:1) of Orange and Red Airbrush Colors.

4. Ice the cake and apply trimmed and airbrushed strips to the sides.

5. Use blue icing in a #10 plain round tube to pipe a beaded bottom border.

6. Use dark yellow in a #10 tip to pipe the giraffe’s head, neck and body; use a #5 plain round tube to pipe arms, legs and tail.

7. Use chocolate icing in a #10 tip to pipe the monkey’s head, ears and body; use a #5 tip to pipe arms, legs and tail.

8. Use the chocolate icing in the #5 tip to pipe the giraffe’s spots and tail fluff.

9. Use flesh tone icing in a #5 tip to pipe monkey’s maw, hands and feet; use a #4 plain round tube for his fingers and toes.

10. Use grey icing in a #4 tip to pipe mouse’s head, body, arms, legs, ears and tail.

11. Use black icing in a #3 plain round tube to pipe all animals’ facial features, as well as the giraffe’s hooves.

12. Use Mini Birthday Assortment Dec-Ons® decorations to add life to the party! Use hats for the giraffe and monkey, blowers for the mouse and monkey, a cake, and balloons held by the monkey’s tail!

13. For the top border, use red icing in a #10 tip to pipe one dot at each cardinal point; then pipe one more red dot between each of the four cardinal dots. You will have eight dots total.

14. Alternate blue and red dots, as shown; fill in small dots with red icing in a #4 tip.
