I made this cake for a 4 year old's birthday. It was precious and the kids loved it. I did adapt it a little by rounding the top corners and putting the toenails around the front of the feet, not on the side like the photo. Also since it was a little girl's birthday, I added a pink bow and pink flower. I did not pipe the top of the cake, only the sides. Instead I iced it smooth and then patted the top with a paper towel to make wrinkly elephant skin. See http://fromchapelhilltochickenville.blogspot.com/2010/01/ellie-elephant-cake.html for a photo.
