An Elmo Birthday Party

I can't believe Micah is already two years old...time does fly by so quickly.   Was it just a year ago that he had his dinosaur-themed first birthday party?  These days Micah is all about Elmo from Sesame Street so that's the theme Evelyn chose for his party.   The kid's got good taste - I love Elmo as well...he's too cute for words.  Unfortunately I couldn't attend Micah's big party this year but I made some sweet treats that he and his guests could enjoy.   

The birthday cake was four layers of high ratio chocolate butter cake filled with raspberry swiss meringue buttercream and decorated with colored fondant.  I wish I had applied the frosting a bit smoother but I ran out of buttercream.  However I am happy with how the "2" cookie favors turned out.  Their red and orange color theme were inspired by Elmo.



  1. I think the cake looks great, and those 2 cookies are so cute!

  2. I'm so impressed by your baking skills. A great idea for my son's birthday.
