Elmo cakes are pretty popular, especially for first birthdays. Here are a couple of cakes I made with Elmo. They always turn out differently, not really sure why.
When my daughter saw the second elmo cake, she said "elmo looks kinda traumatized" which made me laugh hysterically!
I'm getting better, and realizing that it's really hard to make something look exactly how it's supposed to look, in the cake world. i mean, look at that dinosaur on the train. I didn't model him after anyone, and he looks fine, right? Maybe I should only do imaginary creatures! j/k
