Rated 5 out of 5 by Janie A from I loved this. I put a pink tutu on it for a little girl's birthday. She loved it! I used a 8" square cake under the elephant so they would have more servings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rebeccalw68 from The elephant is a complete success! I've done this one several times in various themes and it always turns out cute. For the ears, we used foam from the craft dept, it's lighter than the cake boards and isn't always necessary to cover with icing. I've also used marshmallows for a smaller trunk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katyt from I loved this cake and so did my daughter for her 1st birthday! I think the instructions worked very well to construct the cake but the frosting it was a bit challenging as i made homemade buttercream frosting. I had to keep putting the frosting back in the fridge to harden up or else my stars turned out mushy or it slid down the cake. I made a pink version with darker pink ears to match my daughter's favorite elephant blankie. Family and friends raved about the cake and really preferred the heavier and less sweet cake mixture of pound cake and regular cake mix. :)
