I made this Elmo cake for my great nephew’s first birthday party! I used a Wilton cake pan then I put 1,13×9 cake underneath to make sure I could feed everyone at the party. The cakes I used were chocolate and yellow then decorated it with homemade butter cream icing using a star-tip and icing bag. .Everybody thought I bought the cake at a store, when really it took me about 3-4 hours to complete from start to finish.

In the process, I stained counter tops  clothing and the floor. Overall, the cake was a success and everything went smoothly. My great nephew’s reaction was priceless, he tried hugging Elmo and everyone had to stop him from doing so in order to save the cake!  My niece posted this picture on Facebook and since then I have had people wanting me to make cakes for them. I enjoy baking. Been doing it for a while now and will continue to do so.
