I had a blast making this cake. I enjoyed the color combinations used and the touch of gold. Top and bottom are white cake filled with strawberry/buttercream filling. I used cookie cutter for the right bottom elephant and to make the left bottom one I placed the cutter face up to get the opposite elephant, a mirror image. For the bigger top right elephant I used the same cookie cutter but I used a knife to cut about an inch and a half bigger than the cutter. To make the top left elephant I dusted my fondant really well to prevent it to stick to the large elephant previously cut. so I turned it face down to make an opposite Mama elephant, and got my mirror/opposite elephant and it actually worked. :) The topper- baby elephant I wanted a 3D effect and so I sculpted it out with fondant.
