LOL. This is hilarious. I can't stop laughing. Sorry, I have no idea how that could have happened. I'm sure someone here will know.

My guess was the head was too heavy and the support tore the cake. Maybe next time try a styrofoam head, much lighter. He WAS cute.

Sorry for your loss. icon_sad.gif

Oh I am so sorry this happened to you, but I am also sorry I am LMAO I know I shouldn't be setting here laughing, but (SORRY) I am. I have no idea what caused it I wish you better luck on your next one. I'll put a flower out for Elmo, may he rest in peace.

I'm so sorry that happened... Poor Elmo's head exploded. It looks like his "brains" all over the table. icon_smile.gif Don't think Sesame Street would like that.

Anyway, I think that you had too much marshmallow, making the mixture too soft to hold up to the decorations. I haven't actually tired this yet, but I'm going to start practicing to make a Curious George for my son's birthday in Feb.

It was a good effort though! icon_smile.gif

Oh no! Poor Elmo. I've never seen anything like this. It looks like he 'jumped'. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

He looked really good to start. Sorry this happened. Hope someone has an answer for you.

Well my son who found it thought it was hularious also, he's the one who took the pic lol. Of course I did not find it so funny at 2:30 a.m. But I can now have a good chuckle. It truly looked like his head exploded which my son thought was totally COOL.

I'm so sorry. I'm laughing too. Thank you so much for sharing this. I do know how much work and effort went in to it. He was adorble!

This doesn't look like an accident. It looks like a crime has been committed. Do you have survellance video? You might need to call in the FBI.

I'm sorry, I just couldn't resist. Poor, poor elmo. I can't imagine what happened. He really is pathetic. Will you be able to repair him for the party?

It looks like the rkt wasn't packed tightly enough

I'm sorry that this happened to you but I also had a good laugh. I had an Elmo 3D cake last month too that looks like the one before the head exploded. My problem was the arms were all down when I woke up the following morning. I was able to put more sticks to put it back to place. I also think that the head was loosely packed and let it dry first to harden it.

I packed it pretty good, I even set the head in the fridge to make sure it was nice and firm. I put the amount of marsh. that the recipe called for. Oh and his eyeball was eaten along the way also. I had the eyes and nose sitting on the table, seperate from elmo. Hubby thought it was scrap and popped the eyeball in his mouth ugh. I did ask hubby WHY WOULD I SIT THERE AND ROLL RKT IN A BALL JUST FOR HIM TO POP IN HIS MOUTH?? lol I think elmo was doomed from the beginning.
