My good friend put out a cakey SOS for anyone who likes to sculpt animals to take part in his collaboration for the Greatest Showman. Many fabulous artists took part and i was honored to take part alongside some wonderful hugely talented artists!
This was my contribution…meet heffaflump!
She took me 12 hours to make and for inspiration i googled circus elephants…much to my distress!! Those poor animals! Emotion and movement has always been my thing with animal cakes and as a result i decided to have her balancing on one leg. You can see the sadness in her eyes and that came about not because i chose to put it in there but it ended up that way as every photo i used as reference you could see the pain in those majestic creatures eyes. Its kinda a nod and a tribute to the wonderful animals who are still taken advantage of every day. Let them run free!
She is by far one of the best animal cakes ive ever done and im so proud of not only my work but of the work the other artists put into the whole collaboration and also to Rob Baker Gill who organised it all
And guess what? no fancy icing was used in the making of this. Just good old fashioned tesco fondant! and you can do this too!! Ive had a few requests to do this cake as a class so keep your peepers peeled I am planning a two day class for this cake as we speak
