Is there a single character in the history of children's programming more lovable than Elmo? The red, furry, third-person-speaking creature of unknown origin has been a friend to the millions who grew up on Sesame Street for decades. His unbounded friendliness, wild imagination, and childish approach to life is so adorable you could just eat him up.

That is exactly what redditor u/Triggercut72 attempted to do.

The idea, supposedly, was to recreate a professionally constructed cake which uncannily resembles the beloved puppet. The redditor's attempt did not quite earn the right to be referred to as "uncanny." On the contrary, it is downright haunting.

Meet "Elmer," as the amateur baker refers to this evil twin of a dessert concoction as. The red frosting, applied delicately to become an edible simulation of Elmo's fur in the picture of the left, instead is a sloppy, runny, nearly R-rated mess. The placement of the eyes suggests that something spooky must have shaken Elmo so deeply, it caused his eyes to violently pop out of his head. The nose, which more accurately resembles a crushed walnut than the impeccably molded egg shape on the left, looks as if it is moments away from falling clean off his face.

What would you do if this confectionary monstrosity was all you had to serve at your kid's birthday party? Would you bite the bullet and serve it anyway, knowing that this cake will likely give your little tot nightmares, or do you just throw it in the trash and hope it doesn't come back to haunt you, a-la Chucky? Let us know how you'd react in the comments!
