I made this rhino cake for my niece's 3rd birthday!  She asked for it!  Who knows why a 3 year old girl wants a rhino cake.  And yes, in the spirit of Steel Magnolias, it was red velvet on the inside.

Wow! Where did you find a rhino pattern for a cake? Your niece must have been so excited. It looks great!

She was very excited!  I didn't use a mold or pattern.  I just googled "rhino cartoon" and went by a drawing that I found, carving it freehand from a 13X9.  However, carving a red velvet cake and frosting it proved to be difficult.  All those tiny RED crumbs!!!  But a crumb coat did the trick.  Thanks for your kind comments!
