Oh, my!
Poor Elmo's head 'asploded'! I say, roll out some yellow fondant and make it 'crime scene tape' to put around the cake.
Maybe call in the SS CSI (sesame st crime scene investigation) team? icon_smile.gif
Thanks for sharing!

tripletmom- that was great! I hate to laugh at your mishap, but that is too funny. Very appropriate for Halloween or those parents that are tired of Elmo. At least he's not as bad as Barney! icon_smile.gif

Now there's two Elmo's? I'm beginning to think there's a serial killer on the loose. Time to start rounding up the suspects...

Big Bird-Is he jealous because Elmo's more popular?
Oscar the Grouch-Did Elmo's nauseating happiness finally get to him?
Cookie Monster-Did Elmo steal the last cookie?
Bert-Was Elmo spending too much time with Ernie?

Oh, I'm mean. I love Sesame Street and I love Elmo...so sorry this happened to you guys. I would've been in tears. But since it didn't happen to me I can LMAO icon_lol.gif

Better luck next time thumbs_up.gif

You guys are keeping me laughing. Snap Cracke & Pop, the SS SCI Crime Team, oh man I haven't laughed this hard in a long long time. Sorry I know you two put alot of hard work and time into Elmo but the more I read these comments the more and the harder I laugh.

This is unbelievable. Can RKT really expode? Both Elmo's look like they really exploded. In tripletmom's picture you can even see what looks like red on the wall, and his nose blew out in the front.

I picture RKT sllllooooowwwwly and stickily falling, like in slow motion. That is what you would expect to happen but these things look like someone put a firecracker in Elmo's head.

You guys may have discovered some previously unknown chemical reaction...I can just see the headlines in Science Digest:
Rice Krispy Treats formed in the shape of Elmo's head have just the right chemical properties and molecular bonds to make them conducive to combustion. icon_confused.gif

It is really the strangest thing.

I am so sorry for your RKT. I am so sorry for poor Elmo. I loved Elmo. He was my favorite annoying character on Sesame Street when the kids were little.

Your exploding head reminded me of my exploding pumpkins. Every once in awhile, I get ambition in the Spring time to grow those giant pumpkins. You know which ones? Those monstrous 2-500lbs suckers. Well, its hard to do in my town because when the hot weather hits, it REALLY hits. And it gets blazing within a matter of days!

So one year, I was watching two really, really nice sized giants. They were growing just perfect! Wonderful specimens. Little to no bugs, too (a major deal.) Beautiful pumpkins. Just beautiful. I babysat them with tender loving care.

And then the hot weather came. And it just came on fast! I had sprinklers, soakers, water, everything I could come up with. I used my beach umbrella to shade the pumpkins. I tried boards. Just everything. And they were still growing very rapidly.

Till one morning. "Pumpkin Shrapnel."

I woke up to pumpkin guts everywhere. I thought the neighbor kids had played a practical joke on me and annihilated my precious babies! I cried and cried and cried! Silly me to cry over a massacre! I told my work-buddy about it, and he stared at me and told me "They exploded, you silly girl! The hot weather made them heat up inside and explode."

And now I just laugh my silly-girl cake patootie off when I have to retell that story!! Hee hee, it was indeed a very messy pumpkin patch!!

I hope you find solace in our humor towards your mishap. icon_smile.gif

I knew fruit could do that. We woke up one night to sound of an explosion and then a terrible smell followed it. A seemingly innocent looking watermelon on the counter had just exploded! It looked normal on the outside but had apparently fermented on the inside until it just blew up. It was huge, stinky mess!
But RKT? That was what happened to me KathysCC when I tried to make a RKT character too tall, she slowly fell stickily apart...
I do wonder what made the Elmo's explode though...

O.K. I have to tell you guys this I was in our local Wal-Mart and I saw Elmo, and right there in the isle I started laughing I could not stop. I know the customers thought I was crazy. A sales-person came up and just looked at me, I just looked her in the eyes and said "Forget it you would never understand". I am so afraid I will never look at Elmo the same way as I did before this thread.

OH MY GOSH... at first I read this and thought aww you poor thing all that work, THEN I read on I have proceeded to spit my soup all over the computer desk and laugh so hard it brought my DH in the room to ask what was wrong. With every post I laughed harder. THEN went back and looked at the pics again you have given a whole new meaning to Elmo. I too can see my self at the store cracking up with the flash backs of the pics and comments. Such a great family here at CC. I am really sorry snicker snicker Elmo's head umm blew up maybe he blew his nose to hard hehe.

I have had a couple of disasters with RKT myself.

I have learned:

1. Use NO butter in the recipe--just marshmallows and RC

2. Crush the RC to make your finished product as firm as possible

3. Allow the RKT to set up for a while---at least a day.

4. If #2 is not an option, cover with Royal Icing and allow that to harden for about an hour or two.


then proceed with fear and trepidation... icon_rolleyes.gif

Hi cakebaker1957 I'm sure by now you figured out RKT is Rice Krispy Treats.

Wow, what a delicious mess!

(Hannibal Lecture with the brains...ewww...sorry, that was a little too graphic even for me!)

"Awww....Elmo not look too happy"!

Are you sure this was a "natural disaster"? Or maybe MURDER?
