Elephant Cake

This morning I made this cake for my niece, whose only request is that it had marshmallows on it. She had been at my daughter's birthday party last month and saw that I used marshmallows for the Hippo's toes. Easy enough! The elephant had marshmallow toes :)

I guess she won't mind that I used marshmallows to prop up the ears. I didn't have enough advanced notice to make ears and let them dry so they could stand on their own. SO.....marshmallow propping will have to do :)

    1. The body was from 9inch round cakes, round off the top layer so it's a dome shape. The head is 5 inch rounds cut the same way. The trunk and legs are cut from a 9x13. Just play around with the form until you like it!
