One elephant, two elephant, three elephant...
A co-worker of mine placed an order for 124 elephant cookies, made with my shortbread cookie base, flavoured with Masala Chai spice (cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves and black pepper). The cookies were outlined and covered with melted white chocolate, similar to the process of flow icing. I opted for the chocolate because it is less sweet than flow icing and it goes smoothly with the shortbread. The red accents are drawn on with red candy melts s and accented with edible red shimmer. Gold touches are painted on with edible gold paint and golden sugar balls. Ears, toes and darker detailing are drawn on using melted cinnamon chips. The entire order took me around 24+ hours to complete. 100 cookies acted as party favors at a 25th wedding anniversary, 1 dozen were used as a gift with a complimentary best wishes heart to couple and 1 dozen were for personal enjoyment.
I'll be dreaming of elephants for the next little while lol.
