Sesame Street Cake for Connor

Wow! It was a busy summer.  So busy, I forgot to include Connor's cake on my blog.  I know! What's up with that?  I had so much fun with this character cake.

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.
