From the Cake Pop Princess (great name):
From OC Pop Shoppe (while there check out their cute-as caterpillar cake pops)
That's about all I could find for cake pops so here's a couple of ideas for elephant cupcakes.
And from the Cupcake Blog.
I like this neat solution of doing just the heads.
I've come to the realisation that I'm going to be way busy in my "spare time" doing all these things - that spare time will be sometime after mid-October I reckon.
