I need help with making an elmo cake?

I am going to attempt to make my daughter an elmo cake for her 2nd birthday. I had the idea of making a sheet cake and then making a round cake of elmo's face and setting it in the center of the sheet cake. However, I don't know how to go about doing this. Do I need to place something inbetween the cakes? If so, what?


  1. The round cake is light enough that you can set it right on top of the sheet cake without any extra support. Just frost the sheet cake first so the frosting will help the round cake layer stay put. Good luck!
  2. Yes that shoudl work just fine, no need for support. Use the star tip when your decarate the cake. Just press and pull and since elmo is kind of furry it will look more like him.
  3. try to google it online
  5. Wilton sells a Elmo mold I would check it out and see what stores they sell it at. I know here in California they sell those at Joann Fabrics and Michaels crafts
  6. this should be PERFECT! best wishes!
  7. actually you can get a elmo pan at stores like walmart then simply use a icing bag and a star tip that will be really easy
  8. The cake should be ok on top...but if you want to play it safe then get a round cake broad and some wooden dowels from Michael's or Hobby lobby. Make sure the cake round is the same size as the bottom of your round cake, and that the dowels are the same height as your sheet cake. Place dowels in sheet cake (about 5 should due)under the round board and cake. has a chart that might explain better than me. Also if you want elmo to look fuzzy use Wilton's piping tip #233.
  9. Have made an elmo cake - you can hire the tins from a cake hire shop. They have food colouring and extras! You can do Elmo's face or a whole Elmo! Best Icing - White Mountain Frosting!! 2 cups of icing sugar 1 cup of water 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar 4 egg whites 2 teaspoons vanilla 1. Put sugar in heavy saucepan and add water. 2. Add cream of tartar 3. Bring to boil - no stiring - until hits temp of 240degrees (Candy thermo) turn off - add food colouring 4. Beat egg whites in stainless steel bowl and then add vanilla. 5. While beating high add sugar mixture in a fine stream very slowly. Ready when syrup is absorbed and frosting is thick
