If you haven’t done so, read this post to learn about how this cake came about! An adorable 3-year-old wanted an “Elmo at the Beach” themed pull-apart cake. If you have never seen or heard of a pull-apart cake, the picture explains it all!

Kayla, one of my friend, Danielle’s, daughter turned two this year and I was asked to make her birthday party cake! Last year, I made an Abby Cadabby Cake and a Smash Cake for her first birthday (click the names to see the previous posts) and they were a hit! Naturally, Danielle knew she wanted a Pastry Shells creation at her next birthday party! This time, the theme was centered on Tinkerbell! We decided on a cupcake tower with a small, fondant covered cake on top.
