It's the best tool I have ever purchased.  Love it
If you place the elmo cake on the sheet cake, stack it like you would any tiered cake.   Dowels in bottom sheet, and elmo on a cake board that rests on the bottom dowels.   Make sure to put icing on the underside of the Elmo cake to help adhere it to the board.   Refrigerate well and transport very cold.

In looking at your designs, I think they lend themselves to basic cuts.  Do you want specific shapes of the characters.  I don't believe I would go that route. Basic oval, circle, square and flower seem to work best in my opinion.  Butterfly is easy to find
are you decorating with royal icing, or just baked cookies.
On the center of the cake I put the healthy eating plate
There are a lot of tutorials. I have pasted the links to 2 of them   Do you belong to the website "My Cake School".  If so, she has a GREAT tutorial, but there's an annual fee to belong.   The task is to make individual rose petals by cutting the circle (petal) out of fondant, and then use a ball tool to frill the edges.  Once done, let it set for a few minutes to get a...
