I would make the beak from gumpaste with a wooden dowel inserted into the back. Then when you insert it into the cake attach with melted chocolate
Hi there. I tried posting instructions a couple of times and I got an error message both times. I actually did it exactly like the person above described but I glued it with royal icing. You can also use chocolate. I cut out leaves with a leaf cutter and glued them on Big Bird. Elmo's nose was also glued and I also put a toothpick to go into the cake for extra support.
Thanks Terry11621 They want regular buttercream. I use Sugarshaks recipe. I wonder if I could use rice krispie treats for the eyes and nose cover them in fondant and put them on a lollipop stick and attach them with melted chocolate? Or would a good layer of buttercream and delivering a chilled cake work?
How about using an ice cream cone? Cut to the length you want and then in half, cover in buttercream. It shouldn't be too heavy and you can stick it right into the cake. I would use marshmallows for the eyes by slicing them into thinner rounds. The sticky side exposed might even look better than the matte side!
