Do you have the 3D Frog Pan?? if so you can make it with that and just add say card board for the ears.

You can use buttercream frosting and pipe them right on to the cake..

You can get a coloring book page of an elephant and do a Chocolate Transfer or a Buttercream frozen transfer or you can use the glaze. if your interested in any of these there is step by steps of this on my web site the first two are under Calif4dawn and the last one is under my name in the sugar craft article area..

You can draw this out on to a piece of waffer paper and then color it in with non editable markers or food coloring or non editable chaulk ..

Hope this helps..

Hi,
Go to the photo gallery and do a search for elephants. There are three hits there. I especially like pink elephant, but I'd do it with crusted buttercrem and then fondant for the ears and trunk. Hope that helps some. Good luck!

I like my pink elephants I made for New Years once. It' could easily be made in to any celebration cake (as long as the person understands the joke behind pink elephants... I'm amazed at how many young people don't.)

Some of us do icon_wink.gif - maybe the ones that don't have never watched the movie Dumbo.

Ok, I'm one of the young ones that doesn't know the joke. I love a good joke icon_lol.gif . Tell me please!

When you are drunk- you see pink elephants dancing all around you.

The joke is actually older than the Dumbo movies, but a lot of people know of the joke in reference to that.
