Elephant Baby Shower Cake (click photos to enlarge).
This was my very first baby shower cake, gah! It was also my first two-tiered cake that was to be completely covered and decorated in fondant. White almond sour cream cake with vanilla bean butter cream filling and icing on the bottom tier and triple chocolate fudge with whipped chocolate butter cream filling and icing on the top tier. All accents are hand molded or hand-cut fondant. Thanks to my hero, Lorraine McKay, for the free online elephant tutorial! I had no clue what I was doing, but thanks to her generosity and that of many others like her within the caking community, I had plenty of help. I can only hope I learn enough one day to pay it forward.
