  1. Hi, I was going to make an Elmo cake for a friend of a friend and I was woundering if you used color flow for this cake and the My little pony cake. I don’t know if you will get this but if you do could you please e-mail me at PandaRanda86@aol.com.
    Thanks Miranda, AKA ramdom fan of your cakes

  2. I got the idea for the chocolate decorations from this book:

    The Whimsical Bakehouse

    Basically it’s just chocolate (the melting kind you buy at
    candy/cake stores) mixed with oil-based gel food colorings. Then
    you use parchment, trace the outline of the decoration in the
    brown chocolate and fill in with the colors, and when you turn
    it over, voila!

    I definitely recommmend the book – it’s really fun.

  3. LOOOOve this cake. Please, please tell me where you got this Elmo cake topper, My son is turning 2 on 8/19, and I need to get this!! please email me at awilda_maldonado@hotmail.com
    I would really, really appreciate your help. Thanks a bunch!

  4. Love this Cake. Can you tell me where you got the pictures from for Elmo and other decorations, and what method you used? You can email me at hannahivysmom @ yahoo.com. Thanks a LOT!!!

  5. So to clarify…

    I made the decorations myself. Basically you can get brown & white melting chocolate from the cake shops and use gel-based inks to dye the colors. Draw the design you’d like to use on parchment paper, using a pastry bag you can trace the outlines with the brown chocolate, then fill it in with the dyed white chocolate. Let it dry and turn it over. The flat side will be beautiful!

    For this cake, I found a picture of Elmo online and drew it / traced it from that picture. I freehand drew the goldfish.

    This book explains about the process:
    The Whimsical Bakehouse: Fun-to-Make Cakes That Taste as Good as They Look!

    If you like making your own decorations, I definitely recommend learning this method. It’s fun and the decorations are edible too. I also used it for this cake (My Little Pony).

    Good luck!
