Elephant-inspired Baby Shower Cake

I posted a sneak peek of this cake on Saturday - now here it is.  A very cute elephant inspired 3-tier baby shower cake.  The top two-tiers were vanilla butter cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.  The bottom tier was chocolate velvet with chocolate swiss meringue buttercream.
I was sent this lovely inspiration photo from the Potter Barn Baby website.  Isn't that so adorable?
 And another view of this cake.  I just loved this colour palette.  And speaking of colour, if you are from Canada, I'm running a Tetley Tea Gift Basket contest until December 19th, so enter now.

What an adorable cake! It's fondant cake, right? I love the concept! It would also probably look as great or even better (since I favor the color more) in pink.

Thank you ladies!

@Cassiny Yes, this cake is covered in fondant. And I'd love to do this cake again in any pale colour palette :-)

Just perfect! I saw your post a few days ago on the elephant and was looking forward to seeing the completed cake. I'm sure this was a 'wow' factor at the party!
