'Elmo Train' Colorful Stripes Chiffon Cake
This is my first time combining a 3D chiffon vehicle with a 3D chiffon character, hence it was quite a time-consuming chiffon artwork =p. This cheery Elmo train chiffon cake was made for a dear mummy friend boy turning 2! My baby girl will be turning 2 very soon too =).
The base chiffon cake is a variant of the Rainbow Chiffon Cake found in Creative Baking: Chiffon Cakes book. I modified the recipe for Sesame Street theme using basic Sesame Street-themed colours, and 5 colours. The train was crafted from chiffon cake using a swissroll for the front, and slices of chiffon cake for the base and passenger seat. The Elmo was made from chiffon cake baked in an egg. Thankful cake was well-received =).
Happy belated birthday dear Ethan!
