Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Cake mix, home-made fondant. What are you most proud of? Elmo came out cute with a party hat. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I started to make a 3 tiered cake with blue color in the middle tiere, it turned out the character did not have enough space between bottom and middle cake and by added the middle tier you wouldn't be able to see the stripes on the bottom cake, therefore I omitted middle tier cake and now name plate color turned out to be the same color as the top cake (not good, but okay). Best advice is to measure your cake size before baking the cake to ensure decorations will all fit.
