Blowing Giraffes

I was watching the Food Network tonight and there was one of these sugar showdowns where pastry chefs have to build very tall sculptures using sugar. There's a lot of experience and skill at play here. And unlike other cooking showdowns, the chefs were being eliminated round by round. One of them was describing his piece and it involved creating two blown sugar glass giraffes, actually two of them. He said, "I've never blown a giraffe before." Luckily for the chef, he was eliminated after round one so, chances are, he'll never have to face that particular challenge.
