Johnnae's suggestion of making a mold is a great one.  If you don't have 
time, though, you might consider just applying a thin coat of sugar 
paste or marzipan to an elephant statue/toy.  If it's marzipan, you can 
peel the coating off to eat.  If it's sugar paste, it's likely to stick 
hard enough that you won't be able to retrieve the original item.  In 
the Midrealm, now-Mistress Rosamund Beauvisage did something similar 
with a plastic man that she transformed into a sugar paste prince. 
Color/paint the coating material for more realism.
