Cake project: Elmo cake

Elmo..either u love him or u despise him..hehe..he’s got a lot of fans out there..that’s for sure 😉

Nurul requested the cake to be round..usually we would make elmo cakes with elmo’s head shaped..so round elmo it is 😉

Baked a moist chocolate cake (1 batter) in a deep 10 inch pan and crumb coat it with red buttercream..I used a combination of americolor red colors – red red, super red and a bit of maroon..and used the grass tip to pipe elmo’s fur

I noticed elmo has a very large nose..so I cut out a rectangular piece of cake (leftovers from previous cake project)..shaped it into a large round nose and coat with orange buttercream

Put the nose in the freezer for a while, and once the buttercream hardens a bit, took it out and smoothed it using the back of a butter knife (or a spatula if u like)..and I piped some black buttercream for the eyes too 😉

Assemble the parts and here we have an elmo cake..the eyeballs are just blobs of buttercream

It kind a look like any other monster from seasame street..hehe..if it is in blue it would definitely look like the cookie monster or even grover..LOL
