Well, crazy thing is...they just turned one! Can you believe it has been a year since I made these cookies for those special little ones! It is so mind-boggling that somehow it has been a year and yet I have not aged a day! Well since we have now entered fantasy land where people greater than 30 don't age, lets continue on and talk about Elmo. You know that furry red guy with the big orange nose, yeah, you know the one. He is absolutely adorable and I have yet to meet a kid who doesn't totally just love him, especially when he is 'tickle me Elmo' I mean who can resist!
So I made the triplets each their own furry red Elmo mini cake and I really loved how they turned out, they were almost cuddle-able except for the fact that the red coloring would never come out of whatever t-shirt I was wearing, so I resisted! Well, here comes Elmo in all of his chocolately-cake goodness and red buttercream fur. Happy 1st birthday to those special triplets!
Happy baking, happier eating!
