The Elmo Cake

Yeah, I'm pretty proud of this. First, because I didn't give up (last year Leah's birthday cake was a single serve Betty Crocker microwave dessert). Second, I didn't get impatient and rush through it (Leah's first birthday cake should have had stars piped all over it. I opted to spatula frost instead and it looked terrible). And third, even though it was easier than a paint by number IT LOOKS LIKE ELMO!

Good job Mel!! It looks great. It is more creative than any cake I have ever imagined making.

Looks fabulous! I always have great cake ideas.. but never bring them into fruition. Whenever I try, I fail miserably. So, we stick to cupcakes. But you did great!

Look at you go, the next Betty Crocker! It looks really good!

It looks great! It puts the Elmo cake I made a few years back to shame!

Wow, I'm impressed! All those stars must have taken forever! I can't believe Leah is three already. I remember her as a newborn at Lisa's shower. But Benjamin's almost there too. Time sure has flown!
