Ben's Elmo Cake


This is Ben's Birthday Cake. Today he is 2. While I was making this Ben did everything he could to get his hands on the cake and the frosting. At one point I had moved the cooling cake over to one of the counters. Not remembering Ben had a growth spurt this week, I turned my back on him and the cake. When I turned back around Elmo was missing the hand that was holding the present. I looked at Ben, he had crumbs all over his face, then he sweetly looked up at me and asked for "more cake Mom?". Its a good thing this was his cake and not one of his brother's! So I did the best I could to fix the cake but Elmo did loose a limb. I'll post more pictures of him blowing out the candles tonight when we dig in.
