Happy 2nd Birthday! Elmo Cake
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 12
  • Your favorite cake mix
  • Elmo cake pan
  • prepared fondant
  • prepared frosting
  1. Follow the direction on my box of cake, and threw it in the pan :) Make sure if you are doing a character cake to spray it with a non-stick spray.
  2. When the cake comes out of the oven, let it cool for quite a bit. After it has cooled, slice off any part that has puffed up. This way, when you pop the cake out, it will lay on a flat surface, making it less likely to crack.
  3. Now it is time to cut out your fondant. I have the recipe posted on the 4th Birthday Princess Cake post.
  4. Make sure before you place your fondant, you put a thin layer of frosting down.
  5. Once all your fondant is in place... it's time to frost!!!
  6. I used a star tip and did large "sloppy stars" to give Elmo a furry look.
