Sweepin’ the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet
Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street ….
Hahaha…that song’s in your head now, isn’t it?
It was in my head when a new client emailed me for a cake for his son’s 2nd birthday party. He emailed me a couple ideas for a cake: bold colours, alphabets and numbers scattered around, and a few sesame street characters to finish off the piece.
That was the fun part.
I started off with my favorite character: Cookie Monster.
I started off with a rice krispie body and head.
Then covered him in blue fondant, which i scored to get his messy furry look.
And what is Cookie Monster without his own accessories? COOKIES!!!
I then started on Big Bird. Of course I wasn’t going to put a 7′ tall bird on this cake, but he turned out to be just as cute.
I layered on fondant feathers for a ruffled feathery look.
Elmo was done the same way as Cookie Monster – except in red fondant, of course.
And “Tah-dah”…. Sesame street couldn’t get any sweeter….
