I just made this Sesame Street Band Birthday Cake for our little man Nathan’s birthday party tomorrow. It consists of six layers of Triple Chocolate Fudge, Strawberry, Lemon Poppy seed, Cherry Chip and Funfetti. The bottom tier is 1/4 sheet cakes of one layer of Triple Chocolate Fudge and one layer of Lemon Poppy seed filled with chocolate fudge butter cream. The second 8 inch tier consists of a layer of Cherry Chip and a layer of Funfetti cake and filled with chocolate fudge butter cream.
The top 6 inch tier consists of two layers of strawberry cake and filled with strawberry butter cream. The layers are all frosted with butter cream frosting, the top tier is tinted yellow, the middle tier is tinted blue and the bottom tier is white and then covered with Streamers Sugar Sheets Edible Decorating Paper which was purchased locally and also used on the top tier for package opening look.
The white borders on top where done in a reverse shell design and the bottom green borders were done in a shell design. The Playskool Exclusive Playset Sesame Street Band Ernie, Bert, Elmo, Big Bird Cookie Monster and Sesame Street Elmo Cake Topper Pop Tops were purchased on line. The Sesame Street sign is a template I found on line and printed on photo paper and cover with contact paper before putting on the cake with white frosting. The music notes are also a template I found on line and traced and filled in with black gel.
