1952 Chevy Pick-up and Elmo Cake

Elmo and 1952 Chevy Truck Cake for a Two-Year Old's Birthday

Elmo without his fur. I was going to use red royal icing for some fur but it was 7:30 in the morning, so I decided he looked alright shiny and smooth.

Ok, I know a lot more about Elmo than I do about trucks. I can tell the difference between a truck and a car but that's about it :P. I googled trucks and came across a blue 1952 Chevy pick-up, so that was my attempt in this cake.

The cake board was made out of white royal icing and fondant circles. The foam I had underneath didn't have pores so the royal icing didn't breath and dry up very well. The cake was French vanilla with butter cream icing, covered in fondant. The back of the truck was filled with red hots and fondant and sugar cube presents.

I used a straw, embosser, and icing tips for tire detailing.
