An Elmo 1st Birthday

It seems like yesterday that we made Victoria's christening cake and now she is turning 1.  We were asked to once again help with this little one's special day.

Since Victoria is a fan of the ever lovable Elmo, her mom asked if we could make a cake with the Sesame Street character.

Both tiers are chocolate fudge filled with white chocolate mousse. The 2D Elmo is made with gum paste and fondant. And Victoria's name and age on the Sesame Street sign is all done in fondant.

The red loopy gum paste bow tops this bright and colourful cake. We also made Victoria her own special little smash cake for her to have fun with.  Also done in chocolate but covered in red butter cream to resemble Elmo's fur.

A small ball pan was used to create Elmo.  Fondant was used for his eyes, nose and mouth.

Happy 1st Birthday Victoria!
