Baby Elephant Baby Shower Cake

There is nothing sweeter than baby elephants for a baby shower cake. These are figure piped with a Wilton #10 figure piping tip with the palest of gray. A #104 Rose tip was used for the Cherry Blossoms and the skirt for the elephants. I love figure piping baby animals. There definitely is a formula for creating cute babies. They need to be nice and round (fat) the head needs to be about 1/3 of the over all size as well as wider than the body. Babies in nature always have over sized heads in comparison to the body. Large eyes with heavy lashes help to create a cute face.
