Elmo Cake

2.01.2010



You'll never believe what I got to do this weekend... I created an Elmo cake for my daughter. We celebrated her second birthday. It was so much fun watching the kids enjoy the different games, but especially the cake.

This is Char enjoying the cake!

The cake was so much fun to make. I used two round cakes and then cut them out in the shape of Elmo. I used cupcakes for his eyes and a cupcake top for his nose. It took a whole bottle of red food coloring (the real good stuff) and almost a whole pack of red Kool-aid to get the frosting red. I borrowed some cake decorating supplies from a friend and did the rest. Chris helped too and put the frosting on the sides. My hand was hurting by the time I finished the top. Sheesh!

Do you have any pictures of fun cakes that you have made? I'd love to know. Feel free to share them with me.

So cute! Some of my favorite childhood memories are about the elaborate birthday cakes my mom would make - your daughter is sure to value your efforts a great deal!

Wow! Elmo cake! I was crazy about cakes with cartoon characters when I was a kid. I'm sure your little girl will remember it in the years ahead :)
