CAKE PANS: Wilton's Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Ernie cake pans. ELMO INSTRUCTIONS: http://www.wilton.com/idea/Elmo-Cake. ERNIE & COOKIE MONSTER INSTRUCTIONS: I enlarged a picture that I had and used a pin to poke the design onto the cake. I just used a large round pan. I traced the shape by poking through the pattern with a pin and I just cut the cake out with a serrated knife. If I was doing it again I would have added fondant features for dimension. You can also use piping gel to trace the design on the paper and flip it over to transfer the design onto the cake.
