My very first Pink Eleoink

My friend's roommate loves pink elephants, so for her birthday, my friend ordered a chocolate chocolate chocolate with chocolate pink elephant cake. I wanted it to be smooth and pretty, so I surrendered and decided to use fondant (I like frosting more, but nothing gives a cake that smooth finish like fondant). There are no parts that are fondant alone and every extremity has cake underneath it...which is probably why his trunk is a bit short and also why I call him my Pink Eleoink. He came out delicious (my sister kept snatching away pieces of cake as I was carving it) and cute to boot. I might even start doing more experiments with fondant :)
