Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Ball shaped cake pans, cake mixes, cereal treats, cake filling, frosting, fondant, toothpicks (attaching arms, legs and trunk), and circus peanuts

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the finished project. I had never made a character cake before.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be cautious of proportion sizes. Color more then enough fondant for the project. Be careful not to make the cereal treats to sticky, makes them hard to manage. Give yourself at least 2-3 days for the whole project. Don't strive for perfection, the imperfections help make the character unique.
