An Elmo Birthday Cake is one of the most popular birthday cakes for young children. Elmo is sweet, kind and inquisitive, making him a great creature for your little one to love.

If you want super easy Elmo cakes and cupcakes, we've got them!

Red Elmo lends himself to loads of fun cake designs, and there are several character cake pans of Elmo (as well as the rest of the Seseme Street gang) to choose from. Here are some fun Elmo ideas for inspiration!
Elmo Cupcakes

These cute Elmo cupcakes were shared by my friend Katherine. She made cupcakes, and then added candies to make Elmo! You can buy the eyes already made, or you can make out of tiny marshmallows and chocolate chips! Try an orange peanut M&M or Jordan Almond  for the nose, and a piece of licorice for the mouth. So cute, and everyone will love eating Elmo!

For this cake, use a Wilton Sports Ball Cake Pan Set (Affiliate Link) to get the round shape for Elmo's head. You can ice it smooth or make it "hairy" like in the example!
