Elmo birthday cake

This was my 2nd cake completed for this weekend, the lovely Elmo. Its a 10" round double stacked and shaped coconut butter cake filled with coconut buttercream icing. I love Elmo but piping his fur was not so fun, it took me almost 3 hrs to complete his fur, by then my hand was cramping up lol Did I mention it took 2 kgs of icing and 2 x pots of Wilton red to make his fur? Yikes!! His eyes and nose are made from fondant and was the easiest part of the cake. I also had a hairy time transfering the cake onto the cakeboard without getting red icing everywhere, but it got done in the end.
