What’s better than cupcakes or a cake? Cupcakes on TOP of a cake! This was a multi-technique cake that had me rolling fondant and piping out our favorite Sesame Street character’s faces!
It is red velvet cake, cream cheese frosting on the inside. It’s covered in light blue fondant and topped with vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting tinted in light blue. The Elmo and Big Bird on the sides of the cake are piped on via buttercream. The plastic Sesame Street faces on top of each cupcake are actually plastic rings that the kiddies can take home with them once they’re done with their cupcake treat!
Overall, a very enjoyable cake to put together!
Again, sorry for the less-than-perfect picture. I was setting up this cake in the middle of the party and I was doing my best to get out of the way. I was also using my smart phone instead of a real camara- something I’m trying to get out of the habit of doing.
