Sesame Street Cake

How time flies..... my godson celebrated his first birthday and his parents decided to take on the Sesame Street themed party.  And of course, to go with the theme I made him a cake with Elmo as the topper as he is the main character for the themed party and then his mom requested for cupcakes to go with the cake.  Photo above was taken at the party.

Cupcakes decorated with Elmo, Big Bird and Cookie Monster. It was a lot of fun to make, simple but a lot of work.

Elmo has marshmallow eyes with fondant pupil. Peanut M&M's color orange. Half of the Oreo cookie for the mouth. Piped with the grass tip to make the furry look of Elmo.

Big Bird has white M&M's for the eyes with black fondant pupil and piped with pink and blue buttercream for the lids. Beak is yellow fondant. Piped using the round tip for the feathers.

Cookie Monster has marshmallow eyes with black fondant pupil. Mouth is half Oreo cookie. Also piped using grass tip for the furry look.
For his main birthday cake I made the mocha cake filled and iced with mocha swiss meringue buttercream. Covered and decorated with fondant.

Elmo topper was made out of fondant and gumpaste. So was the letter S and number 1.
