Elmo Cake with Custom Cake Box

Here is my latest cake using my Cricut Cake and MMF. I used a SVG file and MMF for the fondant Elmo on top of the cake and Sesame Street Cricut Cartridge for the Elmo on the Box.  The box is a SVG file I created awhile back that opens in the front making it easy to slide the cake out.

 I made a HUGE mistake on this cake and once I discovered it I felt horrible - - Joanna is 6 years old not 9... I knew that in making the cake but didn't pay much attention when I added the 6/9 to the cake... ugh! Attention to detail Tee... Thankfully, my customer could easily remove the age and flip it around and she didn't seem upset at all... whew!

    1. MMF is Marshmallow Fondant, home made Fondant. Much less expensive than buying it. The smooth lines on my cutouts? I roll my fondant out on the cricut mat then place in the freezer for about 2 or 3 mins. I then cut the image out using a medium speed. Pop back in the freezer (it has been in the 90's here) for another min then remove it from the mat. I sometimes will get a rough edge but it can be brushed out by taking a small paint brush, adding a little water and brush it smooth.
