This is the first cake I have ever made like this so I was a little nervous. I looked around online for some ideas and then built this homemade 1st birthday Sesame Street cake.

The inside of the cake is tye-dye which is simply a white cake mix separated and colored and then layered in a pan (you get really cool results when you cut the cake).

I used fondarific fondant and it works really nice, it has a nice texture not like other brands. The best part is that it is flavored and you can buy any flavor from vanilla to tootie Fruitie.

From baking to finish – this cake took 10 hours.
