This cake was for a baby shower and I was told that the shower theme was elephants. They don't know the gender of the baby so they just call it "little peanut". She really wanted me to incorperate peanuts into somehow and this is what I came up with. The elephant and peanuts are made out of gumpaste and the cake was a butter cake with vanilla almond buttercream and fresh strawberries. Yumm!!
I had so much fun making the elephant and peanuts. I thought that since they called the baby "little peanut" it would be really cute to have the elephant holding a baby peanut wrapped in a recieving blanket. When the cake was picked up, she was so thrilled with how it turned out.
