How to make an Elmo Cake

  1. I was able to score a great deal on an Elmo cake pan. I just followed 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.cake batter in an Elmo shaped pan
  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.large knife cutting off extra cake from top of pan
  3.  Now it is time to cut out your fondant. Here is a recipe for fondant I found. top down picture of circle shapes cut out of white and orange fondant
  4. Make sure before you place your fondant, you put a thin layer of frosting down.frosting on the nose of elmo cake and black fondant placed on his mouth elmo cake with fondant eyes, nose and mouth placed on elmo cake
