Crumb Coat Cakes: La La LaLa Elmo's World
Anyone remember Lazy Lamby cake? Well, sweet Charlotte turned 2 last week. And this year, Elmo is her man of the hour.
Simple request really...cake for 50, Elmo himself had to be vanilla, everything else at my discretion. Yay, I love "my discretion"!
I happen to know that Charlotte's mom is a bit of a chocoholic, so I decided to keep it simple and stick with a vanilla/chocolate combo (it was a kids party after all).
So here you have it...
Top Elmo layer: Sylvia Weinstock's Vanilla Cake, my go to vanilla cake recipe (no really, this is it! Search no more!), decorated in vanilla buttercream.
Base layer: chocolate cake (try the Hershey's recipe, never fails!), filled with chocolate buttercream, and covered in Fondarific for a smoother finish.
Some finishing touches...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARLOTTE!
