Commission: First Birthday Elmo Cake by cakecrumbs Commission: First Birthday Elmo Cake by cakecrumbs
A cake for a little boy's first birthday. Cake is butterscotch, covered in royal icing and decorated with fondant.

This cake was an absolute nightmare from start to finish, mostly because of the heat. I don't have air con in my house so it doesn't handle Aussie summers well. I was almost tempted to say I couldn't make the cake after seeing the forecast, but I don't like letting people down. It worked out okay-ish in the end. Couldn't get the elmo figure to be all fluffy like I wanted so I ended up leaving him smooth.

Oh my goodness... I was looking for a good idea for a Baby Shower cake back in December and this would of been perfect! My sister and some of her friends were setting up a party for a mutual-friend. I think they had the party a day or two after you posted this, so she already had it figured out what she was going to make... This is really cute though and it looks a lot easier to make then some of the other cakes I found :)

What a fabulous cake. Only using primary colours on a white background is brilliantly striking - great idea! Really nice finish around hte edge of the cake :)

Thank you. :] You know, I didn't notice that it was only primary colours until you said haha.

For the latter I used tap out cutters. Had to clean them up a bit with a craft knife to get rid of bumpy edges - some letters turned out better than others.

You're welcome :) Funny the things you don't notice when doing a cake, after working for hours at it!

Ah, but you can't tell - imperfections are mostly, if not only, visible to the artist.
