I made this Elmo cake for my niece’s 1st birthday. It was my first attempt at an Elmo themed cake and it took me a while, but it turned out awesome. Everyone was so amazed by the cake that they did not want to cut it.

This was the first time I ever used Rice Krispies as well. I’m not a pro cake decorator (no certificates or anything), but who says you need those to make cakes.

To create the cake…

  • I made a chocolate mud cake with chocolate ganche layers.
  • The cake pans used were a 12 inch and 10 inch pan.
  • I covered the cakes in buttercream frosting.
  • I made Elmo out of Rice Krispies andfor the fur I made buttercream frosting and used the grass tip nozzle.
  • I made Elmo’s eyes out of Rice Krispies too and covered them in fondant.

This cake was made with love, effort, time, and hardwork. I love my hobby. :)
