I interrupt my run of Pitfall-themed posts because today is a very special day! Do you know what today is? It’s Elmo’s birthday! Once again the red-furred baby monster has turned 3.5 years old, and in honor of the occasion, I’m sharing a cake that I made waaaaaaay back in 2012. That’s not near to now, that was faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar away!
(Sorry. Wrong muppet. *coughs*).
Back in 2012 I made this cake for my cousin’s son’s 2nd birthday. I honestly don’t remember if it was a chocolate or vanilla cake, but it clearly had vanilla icing (lol).
I made the face from fondant using a sewing pin image-transfer method (tutorial coming soon) and made fondant letters for his name, too.
The sides were decorated with colorful Smarties (that’s like M&Ms to you American folk, not the candy Smarties which we call Rockets here).
Happy birthday Elmo!
