This was my first topsy turvy cake using the tilted tier method. It was also one of the first times I've used an airbrush (on the board). The flowers and buds were made with gumpaste. I used Joshua John Russell's woven texture for the top tier, and the elephant was sculpted from modeling chocolate. Bottom tier was double chocolate fudge cake with white chocolate ganache and mini m&m filling. Top tier was white vanilla cake with the same filling. Both cake were covered in Liz Marek's (Artisan Cake Co.) fondant.
