I'm unsure how to make an elmo head coming out of the cake.
My biggest worry is the amount of stories I read here with cakes collapsing, and because I need to transport this and I've never done it before, I want the head lower to the cake it will sit on, but I suppose it will need some arms or something too!
I have a ball pan but I don't think this is the right shape - how do I do it?
U could use rice krispie squares molded into the shape of his head - stick a dowel in the head and then into the cake - light weight. Or use a styorfoam ball
