My daughter loves Elmo, so I made and Elmo cake for her 2nd birthday.

The cake was just2 boxes of funfetti cake (modified with Strawberry Banana juice instead of water, and melted/cooled butter instead of oil).  The bottom layer was a 10" square and the Elmo was a 9" round, and a Pyrex bowl.  It was filled with Strawberry Preserves.

Blue Fondant is Marshmallow Fondant (found here http://www.cakejournal.com/archives/how-to-make-marshmallow-fondant)

Eyes and nose are fondant covered rice crispy treats, and red frosting is store bought (I couldn't even get a WHOLE bottle of no taste Wilton Red to go red enough--though if I'd had time to let it sit, it might have deepened enough.)

Next time (if there ever is a next time with the Elmo cake) I'll try and carve the head into a better Elmo shape.  I'm pretty happy with it.  This was my second time with the fondant and first time with the grass tip.

And here's the happy birthday girl!

I'd say you did an excellent job on this.  The elmo is perfect and the fur came out just right. 

My grandchildren would love something like this.

Hope the birthday girl was thrilled.
