This was my first Marble cake and I was surprised at how easy it was to do! If any of you need an awesome marble cake recipe let me know and I'll gladly give you the one I used.

|Shaping Elmo's head|
To frost Elmo I used my Wilton's Grass tip to give it more of a long fur or hairy look rather than a short fuzzy look (like a teddy bear or cookie monster). His eyes I frosted white with a spatula and then added the black round pupils.
His mouth is just frosted black and his nose is a peach flavored marshmallow I found that just happened to be about the right size. It turned out not too bad considering it was made from scratch without a mold.

The Elmo cupcakes were pretty similar to the cake. They are frosted with the same tip as the cake and the eyes and nose are marshmallows (just smaller) but the mouth is an Oreo cut in half rather than frosted.
