My Smallest requested an Elmo cake this year for his fifth birthday. Since moving to Canada I have had trouble baking. Different flours, different, butters, different ovens. Anyway here goes:-
Got a Huffle to mix some Orios into some vanilla buttercream and then we added a bit of cocoa powder. Give it some more oomph.
Sandwiched them all together! Added bits of cake on sides for arms.
Made a butter icing which I tried to colour red but dark pink was the best could manage. I daren't put anymore in, not with kids eating it - they are hyper enough without extra help!
Got some red fondant and pressed it through a playdoh squeezer.
Made some eyes (white fondant with a chocolate chip), nose (white fondant dipped in orange moulding wafers melted) and mouth (painted on dark chocolate).
We ran out of fondant, it could have taken loads more as you can still see the pink underneath but I think you get the general idea.
Will be eating this tomorrow.
