Elephant baby shower

I made these for Anna's twin baby shower.  She is decorating her nursery in elephants which made for a cute theme.
Too much Chocolate cake from
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
  • 1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Cream Cheese Frosting:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter softened
1 tsp. vanilla
4  cups powdered sugar

Richann helped me make these cupcake toppers...
And this cute elephant decoration that we made to fit over the plate holder.

Elephant sugar cookies:

2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup butter (creamed)
1 cup sour cream
Combine & beat until creamy. Add 61/2 cups flour and 2 tsp. baking soda, and 1 tsp. salt. Mix well. Roll out on floured counter 1/2 inch thick. Cut out with cutter. Place on greased sheet and Bake for 10 min. @ 350.

I have no idea why this didn't download straight but you get the idea of how I decorated them using the stripe and polka-dot theme.  This was a really cute shower that Rachel did.  I wish I took pictures of the adorable banner and food table but trust me it was super cute.
