Paul introduces us to his gorgeous Baby Elephant Cake that is fantastic for a boy or girl's celebration cake. We're sure this will be a popular one amongst the kids - the baby elephant is quite irresistible! The cake can easily be adapted to suit any occasion with simple changes of sugarpaste colour and additional decorations. The design includes lots of brilliant techniques that can be used time and time again. This cake is aimed at intermediate level cake decorators and will take two half days to make, allowing for drying time.

We would love to see your take on the Baby Elephant Cake – please share your photos with us on our Facebook Page!
