I am going to be making a cake to look like this one pictured: Only need it to feed 5 people..

Originally was going to do a 6 inch round, (4 inch high) - but wondering if the elephant would have to wrap around too much?


Do you think a 8 inch single layer may look more proportionate?  Sometimes I tend to over think things..haha


Thanks to all who may have an opinion on this!

If it wraps around too much, can't you just scale down the elephant size to suit your round? Super cute cake, btw.

i say make it an 8" and have extra cake!  If this is for a client, then instituting a minimum size for design will ensure you will be compensated adequately.
