Elmo Suprise!!

Precious Little Ava with her Birthday Cake!

Every cake made for a child is a special one because of the magic it brings. The way a child's face lights up when they see their cake for the first time is a moment that stays with me forever and makes what I do mean so much. Precious little Ava is turning the BIG 2 and she is in LOVE with Elmo! When dreaming up the perfect cake for sweet Ava, it needed to contain a few things. First, Elmo! (who needed to be the star of the show). Second, it had to be colorful. Third, it needed to be "somewhat" girly for a tiny princess and VERY sweet! And vuala!, you have a combination of Candy Land and Elmo with a sprinkle of princess in the cupcakes!

The main colors I pulled from Elmo himself.....the reds, golds, and orange tones. The lime green, I chose as a nice contrasting color with splashes of pinks, yellows, and electric blue. The cake was an explosion of Sesame street starting with Elmo popping out of the cake and the street sign announcing Ava who is 2. The polka-dots surrounding the cake showcase the educational side of Sesame Street with each large circle containing either the ABC's or the 123's. The final touch to this cake was to add the ribbons, gumballs, small candies, and lollipops.

With the cupcakes, I wanted to continue the polka-dot theme in the coordinating colors, but keep these very girly. I used both lime green and yellow colored swirled frosting, sprinkled with pale yellow pearls, and topped each one with a simple red flower. The final touch was to add the orange and yellow polka-dot bow to each little cake. The end result was beyond my imagination and the reaction from little Ava was priceless! She loved it so much and that made the end of this cake creation worth it's weight in gold!! Have an absolutely wonderful 2nd Birthday sweet little Ava!!

wrapped in love serene.
Their dresses tied with sashes
and futures tied with dreams."
