Here’s my attempt at making Sesame Streets newest edition Abby Cadabby. It’s 3D and everything you see is edible.
All together I used 2 cake mixes.
Her skirt: I used the Barbie wonder mold. Once you bake that section, just slice off the top a little bit to make the platform flatter and bigger for her torso.
Her Torso/ Head: I used the Wilton’s 3D teddy bear and put in only enough cake mix to fill up the head and torso of the bear. Once baked, I did some carving (cut off the ears and arms and shape the body. Use dowels to connect the head/torso, to the skirt.
Her Hair: I used gumpaste. Just roll it out the night before into thin strips, and mold the curls onto a shiskabab… leave it over night so it can harden.
Arms/Legs: I used gumpaste to roll out her legs and arms (attach these last)
**I made this cake for a coworker’s daughter whose name was also Abby. with the leftover cake batter, I spelled out her name using 4 cupcakes
Decorating: I used the small star tips for her skirt and then the bigger star tip for her body. After everything was piped on, I stuck the arms and legs in with shishkabobs and piped right onto the gumpaste. Then take the gumpaste hair that has hardened from the night before that has attached to the shiskabobs and just stick it into the head.
