Sesame Street cake

Today we have an adorable Sesame Street cake made for a sweet little girl for her 1st birthday :)

Each character was hand cut based on a template I created, and Big Bird also had accents done with edible food writer.  The characters and embellishments were done using pre-made fondant, but the cakes were covered in homemade MMF (with a layer of buttercream underneath it).

The top tier was yellow cake, and the bottom tier and smash cake (with Grover) were chocolate.

This was the first time I used an airbrush technique to get a color gradient on each of the tiers, and I am quite pleased with the results :
