My son's second birthday was this weekend and he has two loves in his life: Elmo and Thomas the Train. Having just moved across town and spend a hectic week unpacking my house, I knew I needed a quick birthday project this year. After imagining myself making a 3-D Thomas cake with accompanying Annie and Clarabel passenger cars....I opted for some Elmo cupcakes. And it was definitely a wise choice because my two year old could really care less.
Red, white, orange, and black frosting. Star tip cupcake with red. Add white eyes and orange nose. Finish off with black mouth and dots for eyes.
