What was your inspiration?
This was for an adorable little girls 1st birthday party. I was told that she had her favorite pink blankey that she took every where...well it just so happens that the pink blankey had a little pink elephant on the corner and what better than that, I thought, than to include her cute little friend on her birthday cake. So I made a little pink elephant for her own little "mommy & me" birthday cake, in addition to everyone else getting their own little elephant for the 40+ cupcakes that went along for the party too!
What are you most proud of?
Well although my first attemp was to make the main elephant out of cake, I wasn't happy with the way it was turning out so I decided to just go ahead and make some more modeling choclate to mold the little guy from that. I'll have to say that I was pretty happy with the outcome - and she loved it so that is what counts the most!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If things are not turning out like you planned...take a step back and realize that you may be wasting time trying to do it that way and there is always another plan to make up for that goof - always, just step back and think about it instead of wasting away your creative time. :o)
