I need to make an Elmo cake for my sons birthday. I have almost no idea what I'm doing. Help!

I'm going to make an Elmo cake for my son. I plan to make a round cake but have no idea about the icing. Do I put regular icing on it then do the red for his hair on top of it? Do I just use decorating icing with nothing under it? What is the best icing recipe?

  • Put icing on it 1st and decorate on top of the icing. The 1st layer of icing will keep the crumbs from getting all over the icing you use to decorate so the cake will look much better. =)
