that sounds like a great idea -- there's a similar elephant topper around that had a balloon held by the trunk and it would tip over because the trunk and balloon threw off the equilibrium -- so i don't know if you're making a topper or a whole elephant cake but watch out for that too -- you'd want to insert a narrow straw or dowel into one of the back legs so it can go down into the cake to help balance --
