Todays mod elephant baby shower ideas come from my friend Autumn Carpenter. At Kiwicakes we sell a huge range of tools specifically designed and manufactured by Autumn.

Tools and Ingredients - Mod elephant cookies.
white rolled fondant
lime green rolled fondant
orange rolled fondant
light blue rolled fondant
pale blue rolled fondant
Mini Accent Cutter Set

Roll white fondant to 1/4" thickness, place fondant on Mod Circle texture sheet and roll with heavy pressure. 
Using the same cutter used to cut the cookies, cut out circles of fondant. 
Brush cookies with piping gel and lay fondant on top of gel. 
Roll orange and lime green fondant very thin and cut small circles using mini accent cutter. Lay coloured circles over the white circles of the cookie. Roll light blue fondant thin and cut elephant; apply to cookie with piping gel. Roll pale blue fondant very thin and cut using largest teardrop shape from accent cutter set. Apply to elephant with piping gel. Add black non-pareil to eye with piping gel




Tools and Ingredients
6" and 8" two-layer cakes
Rice Krispies® Treats 
light blue rolled fondant
white rolled fondant
orange rolled fondant
lime green rolled fondant
turquoise rolled fondant
Mini Accent Cutter Set
lower case alphabet letter mould
flexible poly blade
pastry wheel
comma/paisley cutter
skewers

Hand mould the elephant out of Kellogg's Rice Krispies® Treats and allow to set overnight.  
Cover with light blue rolled fondant. Mix a tiny bit of white fondant with the light blue to make a lighter shade for the ear. 
Use comma cutter to cut and attach to elephant's head using piping gel. 
Attach a black edible pearl or small ball of black fondant for the eye. 
Roll white fondant to 1/4" thickness, place fondant on Mod Circle texture sheet and roll with heavy pressure. Cut a piece long and wide enough to around the side of the cake; attach to cake with piping gel. 
Roll a smooth piece of white fondant and cut a 6" round circle and attach to the top. Roll orange, turquoise, white and lime green fondant to 1/4" thickness then lay Wavy Dots texture sheet down and roll with heavy pressure. Using the flexible poly blade, trim two rows of waves of each color. Use piping gel to attach to cake layering the different colours. Using the same colour as the top row of waves, roll a smooth piece of fondant for top of cake; attach to cake with piping gel. 
Prepare cakes for stacking and place 6" cake on top of 8". 
Roll blue and green fondant very thin and cut circles using the mini accent cutter that fits inside the open circle. Brush open circle with piping gel and place cut piece. 
Continue until a few of each colour is on the cake and fill four circles in a row for the word baby. Mold the letters and place on top of the filled circles using piping gel. Insert elephant in top of cake.
