Easy Elmo Cupcakes

My two-year-old is right in the middle of her Elmo phase. She requests Elmo's world as her lullaby and begs to watch Sesame Street. Her birthday party was full of red and Elmo from the decorations to the party games, but I have to say these little cupcakes were my favorite part. They were so easy to make and were the absolute hit of the party.

You will need:

  • cupcakes 
  • red frosting in a piping bag with a star tip 
  • candy eyes
  • orange gumballs
Add red frosting in a piping bag with a star tip. Make sure you if you make the frosting that you use a no-taste red formula for the dye, so you don't end up with dye flavored frosting. Make short stars all over the top of the cupcake with the frosting to give Elmo his fur.  Add the eyes and gumballs and in just a couple of minutes, you have the cutest homemade cupcake, perfect for an Elmo party! 

This last week, my 2-year-old received some serious happy mail. She told me it was the best day of her life. Along with the Elmo backpack and hat, that she can't get over was the new Love2Learn Elmo Toy! This toy is so cool that my 7-year-old keeps playing with it too!

The Love2Learn Elmo is synced with an app on the parent's phone so that Elmo is completely personalized to each child. Elmo says the child's name and parents can even have Elmo praise their child for cleaning up or brushing their teeth. Elmo is programmed to know much more than just the name of their new best friend. He knows their favorite colors, animals and favorite foods.

This Elmo is much more than a toy, he can be customized to your child's learning level to help your child learn their letters, numbers, shapes, colors and animals. My daughter LOVES that he responds when you clap his hands, in fact, he has multiple sensors so he is really responsive.

Tonight, we laid Elmo down in the doll bed by my daughter's crib. We tucked him into the blankets and I sat at the door and listened to Elmo talk to her as she chatted about her day to him. I love that at this age, he isn't a toy, he is a friend. This Elmo has only been in our house a few days and he is high up on the list of favorite toys. I am pretty sure this little friend is going to be on a lot of kids Christmas's lists this year!
