Homemade Elmo Birthday Cake

My dad's name is Elmo and he drives a dump truck, so I thought that this Elmo Birthday Cake would be the perfect cake for his 70th birthday. I used a Wilton teddy bear cake pan for the Elmo. The eyes and nose are made of gumpaste. I formed an open mouth with gumpaste and after it had hardened I just cut the wedge shape out of the cake and used royal icing to "glue" it in place.

The ears of the teddy bear should also be cut off. If your cake has any cracks in it, use a piping bag to fill the cracks with royal icing. You may also use a piece of foil to wrap around Elmo to hold it together until the royal icing has hardened. I also attached cupcake feet in this way to make his legs longer. This was a fun cake to make.

I think that cake is so cute. How did you make it to where it is 3D? I want to make something like that for my daughter, She loves Elmo! Her Birthday is in a month so we were look to see what we found to make with Elmo.

I love this cake it is too cute. I was wondering how you made the arms particularly the one that is positioned out over the leg.

I also love your cake. I will ask the same questions:
1. What did you use and how did you attach that longer arm on the bear cake mold.
2. What do you mean when you said you used cupcakes to make the legs longer?
Could you be more specific and elaborate. I would love to try my rendition of this.
Any info would be appreciated.

I made this Elmo birthday cake for my daughter's first birthday. Quite simple really - I started with a rectangular shaped buttercake and cut it into an oval.

I used white iced cupcakes with a circle of licorice for his eyes and orange jelly beans in an oval for his nose. His tongue I made out of cut licorice straps to the approximate shape.
I used red sprinkles over red icing to give a "furry" look.

She loved it - yes, she did actually recognize him ("MO") which was nice!

I will be making a Zoe for her third birthday and her brother is getting Grover for his first birthday cake. Their combined party is in a week, so I hope to post the cake outcome at a later date!

I made this Elmo Birthday Cake for my daughter's 2nd birthday. She is obsessed with Elmo at the moment.

The cake is just a double layer vanilla with red food dye joined with vanilla icing. It is all covered with red icing before any features were added on.

I made the eyes from marshmallow snowballs with white icing. The nose was cut from a layer of the cake taken when I leveled it to join the two halves. I mixed some orange food dye with icing for the colour. His pupils and mouth were black writing icing.

Prior to any baking, I used a lot of red food dye with shredded coconut and partially dried it in a very low oven.

LOVE the colored coconut idea to give him fur. I will steal this but maybe try a pina colada cake recipe if I can find one!

Homemade Elmo Birthday Cake

I made this Elmo birthday cake for my son's 2nd birthday. I traced Elmo from a picture on parchment paper. I cut it out and used a toothpick to trace it onto the frosted cake. I used an 12 x 18 Wilton 2 inch baking sheet (2 mixes per layer, total of a two layer cake).

I frosted it with Wilton's frosting (used 10 cups total). I decorated Elmo with a Wilton Star tip and red icing. I hope you enjoy this cake and can use it for an idea of your own.

Isn't it funny

So - I live in Georgia now and was looking for an Elmo cake. I think it's funny that the one I chose came from a Lodian, I lived in Galt til we moved in August of 2007!!!

That is so funny! What a small world. My brother is a dentist in Galt. This was a super easy cake to make and lots of fun.

I traced the picture of Elmo from a coloring book onto the frosting. I filled him in from there.

My son absolutely loved his Elmo birthday cake! This was my first attempt at making my own birthday cake.
