Little Boy's Christening Cake

My friend and Shiatsu therapist asked me to make her son a cake for his Christening.

Here it is! I used Rachel Allen's chocolate mousse cake (x2) as a base, as Katie can't have flour, and some ordinary sponge cut into cubes for the bricks. The elephant was modeled with ready-to-roll fondant icing, and wasn't without incident as the trunk wasn't fully supported as it set, so it kind of fell off! However I used some edible glue to stick it back on and I don't think it is too noticeable...

Somewhere in between 'quirky' and 'professional' now...
