Here are directions for a 3D RKT Elmo cake topper:

Here's a link to all the 3D Elmo cakes in the CC galleries:

I've seen ppl use the Wilton 3-D Teddy Bear pan, minus the ears and then use RKT to extend the arms and legs.

I was going to use the Teddy Bear pan but decided to do it free hand with rice krispy treats instead, check it out on my page icon_smile.gif

I have already bought the Elmo pan and now I'm wondering if I could just make it using that pan and have him "coming out" of a sheet cake? Is this even possible???

I saw the pic and it is so cute. Was this easy to do? I like that he is sitting on another cake. It looks like it was fun to make. Can you tell me a little more about how you did this?? Thanks for your help with this!!

Yes, I made Elmo from rice krispy treats, I make myself, and if its too sticky I add more cereal....and shaped him, then put a skewer down thru him to dry...actually stuck the skewer down inside a unopened roll of paper towels....then I measured after I made the cakes and filled and frosted them to see how much skewer was needed to go all the way down thru all the cakes into the foam core board at the bottom. Then he was nice and secure. I used the grass tip to do his fur, fondant for eyes and nose and mouth, I cut a wedge for his mouth and tucked the black in there..you can form the mouth better when you pipe the red fur around there....I used gumpaste/fondant for the name and other decorations. If you have any other questions I will be happy to help. I am so pleased to hear that you liked my cake, thanks so much!
