when elmo came to visit

we love elmo
who doesn't?
seriously he is cute
a little annoyingly chirpy some days
and his voice..well less said about that the better
but he is so so SO SOOOOO HAPPY!!!!
and that makes me smile and the world a better place

my youngest is very taken by elmo
so he was the theme for her second birthday
 mummy dutifully made the elmo cake complete with red icing with coconut mixed in. eyes were made with white and dark chocolate and his nose is a dried apricot :>
cake was chocolate but a egg-free, butter-free and dairy-free one due to guests with dietary requirements
if anyone would like a copy-it is soooo easy-please email me and i am happy to share!!
i also made her a name banner with elmo using the pennant die
elmo is made with scallop circles and poppy parade
she was stoked with it as well as the multitude of other gifts she was showered with :>
one very spoilt little princess

cheers ears
