I decided to add a bit of pizazz by making the top tier Devils Food Cake, and the bottom tier Chocolate Fudge.
The bottom 10" tier with buttercream icing
And the top 8" tier.
Some fondant stars and a number 1.
Cover both layers with yellow fondant.
Stack the cakes add the stars, fondant rope, of course Elmo and voila!
By the way.... This is titled "The Clumsy Fashionista" because as I was making my way up Liz's steps, I tumbled upwards. I lost my shoe, hit my wrist on her step, but do not fear..... I saved the cake!
Wait a minute....
Maybe I am not too clumsy afterall....(?)
