Hand mold the elephant out of Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® Treat sheet and allow to set overnite. 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 colors. Using the same color 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 color 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.
