Does anyone know where I can find a link to how to make various zoo/safari animals? (Lion, elephant, giraffe, etc)? I'm doing a safari cake for the 20th of October and would like to get a jump start on planning. Any help would be appreciated. I think I found a tutorial on an elephant, but I don't remember where I saved the info! Thanks so much!!

kellyshe - did you ever find anything? I have a zoo cake to do for next weekend and need to start making the animals. I don't have a clue where to begin. Would love to see your cake when it's done!

Here's the link to Aine2's elephant...that might be the one you had and can't find

You can probably apply some of her techniques to the other animals too! Also I've had others suggest that you look at sculpey or other clay sites to seek out tutorials (I know I saw one once on a cow) since basically you'd be doing the same thing, only w/sugar.

I just freehanded mine so my only advice is to "just go for it!" LOL. I did them very simply: spheres and modified spheres. I looked at your pics (did you know you have comments turned off btw) - you'll do fine!

I did this cake which has both the sea life and some jungle animals. I used the sculpey mold for them.
Here's the pic.
