Coolest Homemade Sesame Street Cake

I saw a cake like this Sesame Street cake online and thought it would be really cute for my son’s upcoming birthday. I thought I would have a trial run first and this is how it came out.

I made a marble double layer 8″ cake and a marble double layer 6″ cake. I used buttercream frosting and MMFs, all hand cut, for decoration.

It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and I was happy with how it came out!
