I designed an Elmo cake for a 1st Birthday. I did a 3 tiered cake flavored banana and with banana filling. The cake was then dirty iced with butter cream and covered with fondant dyed red. I made my own fondant out of marshmallows. I designed Elmo’s body out of my sports ball shaped cake pan and made it look like he was sitting down on the side of the cake.
I covered Elmo’s body with red butter cream icing to give Elmo’s fur texture. I made his arms and legs out of rice krispie treats and his eyes out of rice krispie treats. I added balloons and gifts made out of fondant. Cake was a big hit!
