I made this for Margaret's boy who is turning 2. You can't tell by this picture that the Elmo is it's own cake that I placed on top of a square cake. I wasn't very proud of the cake so I didn't take any close ups. I loved doing the Elmo part but the large cake (she needed this to feed 30 people) underneath was hard to smooth. Let's just say I need to continue to practice doing this. Gotta love sprinkles!
* The directions on the Elmo pan said to use a star tip for his fur but I thought it would look more realistic to use the hair/grass tip. I was happy with how it turned out.
This is a bad picture but maybe you can see the dept a little better.
