Elephant baby shower

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I saw a cake on the web somewhere that had a baby elephant made of fondant or gumpaste. I have a friend that wants one like this and I've searched and can't find the picture. Does anyone have an idea where I could find it?

When is the cake for??
I have this Argentinian magazine that just has this cute elephant, with an aviators hat, which you can omit if you like. It gives step by step instructions...The set up includes little pigs taking baths in small barrels, made from round cut-out cakes and covered in fondant. Really cute...
You can just make the elepphant and prop it on the top of your cake...

If it's not for this weekend, I can scan the images for you if you'd like.

Hi everyone,
Thanks for the responses. Those cakes are great. I did the baby shower cake and they were really happy with it.

I'm new to making the fondant and gumpaste figures. It was okay but I'm hoping I'll improve with practice.
Thanks again for the help!
