I used an Elmo face pan for the cake so it wasn't really hard to make. I sprayed the pan down with some baking spray and added a little flour to make sure that it wouldn't stick, threw it in the oven and Voila! there was Elmo as happy as could be! To color him I dyed some buttercream icing red and orange and used some of Wilton's pre-made black decorator icing. I used a star tip to decorate his face which was cool because it gave off that hair effect to his face.
