Elmo Cake

dolfinrse wrote: Alright I am planning on making Zachary an Elmo cake for his first birthday, just for him! Anyway, I am not that crafty, so I figured that I would do a practice one first to work out any bugs before it is time to make the real cake. Here are some pics. What do you think?

I ended up using half of the plastic easter eggs and frosting them for the eyes and nose. I just need to get the right shade of red. This one was still too pink to be Elmo!

The only problem I had is that I ran out of icing, so now I know that I need more.

Jamison'smama replied: That looks great. I hear the food color paste works better for bright/deep coloring --never tried it--but it looks fantastic just the way it is
