Our former renter who had me do her little girl's first birthday cake last year had me do her second birthday cake this year! Mommy wanted a "girly" cake, Kaia wanted an Elmo cake. SO, we compromised - a "girly" Elmo cake.
The cake is a marble cake with Bavarian cream filling. It is finished in fondant, including the Elmo figure, with royal icing flowers.
Happy Birthday Kaia!
