An elephant never forgets and you'll never forget a 10th birthday party with an elephant theme like this. It's like a memory convention!
It's nice to see cupcakes without any frosting on them. The surface of the cake is perfect for the crumbly soil effect around the sprouts. Dare I say it, they almost look healthy with just a little fondant sprout and lack of buttercream.
Some people might look at this cake and think "Wow, someone needs to lay off the foundation!" but I can tell you, being a former MAC employee, it's addictive stuff. There was a time when I, who currently needs to make a real effort to put on mascara every day, would have DIED over this cake. I could have told you the names of the exact shades of every product shown because let me tell you, any MAC freak worth her salt (or sugar) would DEMAND authenticity in color here. Oh the memories.
I'm not sure if it's on purpose but the number 80 on this cake looks like it's made out of some magical fried potato concoction and it's singing to me! It must be my slow carb diet brain talking but somebody pass me the numbers and leave me be!
