3 Dimensional Elmo Cake
I made this Elmo cake for my cousin's daughter, Jayla who turned 3 a few weeks ago for her Sesame Street Themed birthday party. The cake was a marble chiffon cake crumb coated and filled with chocolate buttercream. For Elmo's fur I used Wilton's "grass tip" to pipe out red vanilla buttercream. Elmo's eyes and nose are made with fondant which I secured using toothpicks.
|Used Wilton Doll Cake Mould for the body.
|Sports ball cake pan for Elmo's head.
|Inserted straw for structure support.
|Filled each layer with chocolate buttercream.
Normally I trim the tops of cake to create an
even surface here I kept the dome and turned
it into Elmo's slightly open mouth. Make sure
the top half of the circle is smaller than the bottom
