I enjoy making character cakes for the kids. This Elmo birthday cake was for a close friend of mine’s little boy for his first birthday. He was all smiles when he saw Elmo. I used white cake mix, my homemade butter cream frosting mix and food color paste. It only took me about 2 hrs to make Elmo, I actually did both the Bob the builder cake and this on the same night for the same little boy. He had the Elmo cake for one party then Bob was for the other party.

Elmo was made from one white mix with homemade butter cream frosting tinted red. He only took about 1 hour to decorate.
