The great thing about being able to decorate cakes is that you get to make special cakes for special people.
The body and head of this cake are made of cake.
The legs, trunk and hat are made of rice crispy.
I used the high ratio buttercream icing for the green and a marshmallow fondant for the elephant and hat.
I used the food coloring markers to write the greeting on a strip of fondant.
