What are you most proud of? My animals, this was my first attempt at making gum paste animals and I love how they turned out

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Give yourself plenty of time to make animals don't make them a day before cake is to be delivered :)

The cake is super cute!!! I have a question, last night I tried making the giraffe and the elephant.....I had a hard time molding them.....how did you get your elephant body parts to stay on especially the trunk?

I used tooth picks to keep everything together. I just break them to the size I need. Sometimes you need to use tissue to help ( roll it into a ball and put under the trunk till it drys). Hope this helps :-)
