I am making a two tiered cake with a rice crispy treat Elmo breaking out of the top tier.

Can someone please tell me how to make it look like he is breaking through the fondant.

Cut a cross and then an 'x' in the fondant on the top of your cake and then peel back the points and put Elmo in the center so it looks like he's burst through.

You can dry a few pieces that looked ripped and curl it a little the when stiff stick it around him blending it into the softer fondant....wish I could sketch it out for would be so much easier to explain. pm me if you need more details I can sketch it out take a pic with my phone and text it to you.

I would do what carmijok said. And maybe you can add a few pointy layers of fondant around the base of Elmo too, to cover up anything weird looking.

Someone was discussing this recently for a fireworks cake. Some good info in this thread.
