Coolest Homemade Elmo Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my niece’s 2nd birthday part. The Elmo head is chocolate make with the Wilton Elmo cake pan. The cake is double layer 12 and 14 in red velvet cake with cream cheese icing.

I covered the homemade Elmo birthday cake with home made marshmallow fondant and tinted it yellow and purple, her favorite color. The paper burst were made with fondant mixed with gum-tex to help it firm up. I waited til the day of the party to assemble the Elmo birthday cake.

Everyone enjoyed the cake especially the b-day girl. Along with the cake I made cupcakes with crayon scribbles to hold off the kids that couldn’t wait for a sugar rush.
