Here is Bargy's 4th birthday cake depicting (as requested) his cuddly elephant, Ellie (below).
I fashioned the sugary Ellie using Wilton's Ready-To-Use Gumpaste. Its quite pricey in Australia, but is easy to work with and sets very well.
The hardest part was trying to reproduce Ellie's sad mottled grey-blue, saggy appearance. (Her replica is possibly just a hair's-breadth away from being Cake Wrecks-worthy).
