I had to bake an Elmo cake for my son’s second birthday because he was so crazy, I mean crazy about Elmo. He knows how to sing the songs, and always scream “Elmoooooooooooo” whenever he gets a chance to watch the show. I did lots of research online to find the perfect cake idea but everything I found was so boring.
I was about to give up the idea when one day, I was sitting on the dining table as I was looking at my son’s booster seat made by The First Years. The chair is sky blue and black. And I thought that it would be nice to create a round cake and cover it with that shade of blue, insert Elmo’s head around it, with Elmo’s head on top. This was simply how I achieved the picture you see.
I baked a round 12×2 inch chocolate cake with heavy whipped vanilla cream in the center. I covered around the cake with a sky blue frosting, and covered the top with white vanilla frosting. I then inserted Elmo’s head around the cake, leaving space for his name. The I baked Elmo’s head using Elmo’s head pan from Wilton. When the head was cool, i cut the head from the side all the way across to reduced the height of the head so that the cake is not too large or too high. I placed the head carefully on top of the frosted round cake avoiding the chocolate cake crumbs from messing up the top of the white frosting. It was then I started decorating.
The cake was not only tasty, but all the kids couldn’t wait to get a piece of Elmo’s beautiful head.
