Elmo Tutorial

In March I made my youngest daughter Jasmine, a very special little guy to sit on both her ‘at home’ family cake and then her special ‘party’ cake later in the week.

Elmo rules her world, or should I say MoMo! At the Christmas parade in our main street the only man in red she was interested in was Elmo, as you can imagine, Santa was devastated and I have heard he is seeking professional counselling :( However, I digress, so Elmo HAD to be on her birthday cake! Now those of you who are Mums know how hard it is to make anything in secret from prying-almost-2-year-old-eyes! AND then I had to present him to her on her first cake, light candles, sing, cut, yay, distract nosey-now-2-year-old, and pilfer Elmo from top of cake into a secret hiding place only to do it all again for her party on the weekend! Phew!!

So here he is…he’s very basic, I’m very basic, it’s a basic tutorial….but it’s my first yay! Hope you like it or at least don’t hate it! Ask ANY questions you like and if you do use it PLEASE share pics of your creation with me :)
Thanks so much for looking :) xxx

Cute as a button Elmo cake! Thank you for posting the tutorial. My granddaughter loves Elmo already (she’s only 9 months old) and I’m thinking this would make a cute first birthday cake for her. Thanks again!

Wow! Thanks so much everyone for the lovely comments. I wasn’t sure anyone would be interested! The Greedy Baker, thanks, I did freehand it on about 5mm thick fondant. I stick my glitter on with shop bought sugar glue but I’m told you can make it with tylose and water (haven’t tried it yet) Thanks again for your sweet comments :)
