Elmo Birthday Cake

Elmo Cake, originally uploaded by gensler97.

This cake is one of my favorite cakes I have made so far. I added fondant confetti to the cake to give it more character.

How did you do it?

I used a photocopy of Elmo and piping gel to transfer the image onto the cake. You have to print it backwards to get the photo how you want it. Place the picture under wax paper. Trace the outline of the image detail on the wax paper with piping gel, then turn the wax paper, piping gel side down, onto cake. only enough to leave a trace of the outline. Remove carefully and use icing to trace the image and decorate as you wish.
