I'm going to try to make an Elmo cake for my sons 2nd birthday next Sunday. I'm not going to use a shaped cake pan. Any one ever made one of these? And if so, any tips? I've never made a decorated cake like this before.

I have made loads of these as my oldest is now 9 and I used to make his cousins who is now 15, the most important thing is to make sure you really grease your pan make sure you get all the nooks and cranies as all it takes is one piece sticking and the cake doesn't turn out. as for decorating it is a sinch use a buttercream frosting and tint it I use wilton tinting as I found regular food coloring never worked on the bolder colors. And last but not least patience they are time consuming so give yourself plenty of time to do it and keep it refrigerated until you need it to maintain freshness. Hope this helps and good luck to you.
