Loved doing this cute Sesame Street birthday cake for Reid! It started out as a 3-tiered cake, but Reid’s mom decided that 2-tier was large enough and I added the sign on top to give it that extra needed height.

Reid’s mom specifically wanted Elmo and the Cookie Monster to adorn his cake.  I loved the little details of the stars on wires, the tiny letters cut from fondant, and the multi-colored stripes….so festive and happy.  The cake just screams “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!” don’t ya think?

I debated on adding homemade chocolate chip cookies around the bottom, but I had some extra tan fondant from another project, so I rolled it out thick, used a round cutter, pushed in some mini chocolate chips, and dusted the edges with cocoa powder to make them look “baked.”

I was really pleased with how they turned out.


This was SUCH a fun cake with so many cute details.  Hope you had a great 2nd birthday, Reid (and thanks for asking me to make it for him, Candee :0)!
