1 year old Elmo Birthday Cake
Basic white cake i got from school
You add all your dry ingrediants….
baking soda and powder
Then you add all you wet ingrediants…
Combined the dry to the wet and place in a cake pan lined with parchment paper and bake it at 350 for 60 mins or when a tooth pick comes out clean.
Once the 2 cakes was done and cooled i cut each cake into 3 layers and filled each layer with buttercream frost and added strawberry and banana pieces on top.
once they were filled i frost both cakes with butter cream and layered them with rolled out marshmallow fondant. first i had to color each one blue and yellow
by folding food dye into the fondant.
i colored all the rest of the little cut outs that are the ABCS and clouds and trees and stuck them on the cake with a damped paint brush of water.
With the marshmallow fondant i molded the Elmo head and stuck him on top of the cake.
Marshmallow cake was made out of mashmallows melted and powdered sugar mixed into it to get a dough texture.
The butter cream was made of egg whites and sugar melted over a bain maire and mixed into a merginue then added butter.
Its A YUMMY White cake with buttercream/banana/strawberry filling. Frosted with buttercream as well. Has Marshmallow fondant and everything is eatible but the crayons and 4 little statues.
