Elmo Cake & Cookies

30 Sep

Hello Everyone,

This weekend I had a request for an Elmo cake. The birthday girl was Leah and turned 2 this weekend. I was asked to make a chocolate and vanilla cake with a cookies and cream filling. I did two layers of chocolate and the middle layer was vanilla.

I had made some sugar cookies a week before and had extra plain sugar cookies so I tried to see if I could do Elmo cookies. I think they came out good. I started by doing the outline of Elmo’s head in black. Once that dried I was able to fill in the other colours (orange for the nose, red for the face and white for the eyes) all at once.

A 4″ circle cookie cutter was perfect for the head. I first drew out the design in yellow edible marker then traced it out in black royal icing.
