Sesame Street Birthday

This post is brought to you by the letter C – A – K  &  E.

Kaitlin wanted an Elmo cake for her son’s birthday. It was to be a small personal vanilla cake just for her son.  She told me she preferred fondant, so we started tossing around ideas and began creating the well-known little fella.

To begin, we baked an 8″ round cake. We carved away the edges to form Elmo’s face. We covered with buttercream and a thin piece of fondant. We placed a small piece of black fondant where his mouth would be and placed it on top of the cake.

We mixed up red marshmallow fondant and used our fondant pump (looks like a pump with multiple holes in the end to create a spaghetti effect with fondant) and pressed long strands of fondant out to create the texture of fur.

We cut it into small groups and added it to the bottom of the cake and worked our way up.

After all of the fur was in place, we created the eyes and nose.  After five hours (most time spent on fur) the cake was complete.

Kaitlin, thank you for contacting us and letting us be a part of your son’s special day. We had a blast creating it for him!
