Connor loves Sesame Street. Of course for his 1st birthday it would only be fitting to decorate his cake based on his favourite theme.
This is a chocolate two tiered cake decorated with fondant. I created Elmo, Big Bird, Oscar and Cookie Monster with gum paste. I then covered the gum paste figures with royal icing.
You know... I think the most difficult part of this cake, was making those teeny, tiny cookies.
