This Elmo Cake is make out of a modified Red Velvet Cake Mix, a homemade Butter Cream frosting recipe AND 4 MILLION gallons of Red Food Coloring! His head was held on by Bamboo skewers (be carful with little kids and skewers). Decorating Tip #33 was used to make him furry!

The eyes are marshmallows with black fondant, the nose is orange fondant and the mouth is rolled and cut out black fondant. The Happy Birthday sign is actually cake, wrapped in rolled fondant with cut out fondant lettering.
