Word on the street is it's Sesame Street Day!
Talk about the perfect day to celebrate with cake: how could you NOT be happy looking at this?

Even Oscar the Grouch is smiling!
And please note those aren't toys; they're all hand sculpted figures. WOW.
There are so many sweet Abby Cadabby cakes out there, but I especially love how this one looks like an old-fashioned doll skirt cake:
(Baker unknown. Anyone know?)
And check out these bright colors:
(Awesome Edible Art, Florida)
Orange and pink is still one of my favorite combos.
Cookie Monster is another one who gets TONS of fabulous cakes, but I have to shout-out this rare gem that uses REAL chocolate chip cookies:
(Sweet Traditions, Oklahoma)
See, I am a HUGE chocolate chip cookie fan, so I'd be picking those babies off faster than you could cut the cake. Plus that Cookie Monster up top is the absolute cutest.
(Pro Tip from someone who samples every chocolate chip cookie I come across: believe it or not, McDonald's makes the best ones. Trust me. If you get them warm out of the oven they are HEAVEN.)
Check this out: the baker spelled out the birthday girl's name in Muppets!
(Sweet Things, Toronto)
AMAZING! I like how Ernie's hair bridges the Y, haha.
One year at Dragon Con we came across a guy on the street carrying Oscar the Grouch in his trash can, and he even had a false arm so he could puppet Oscar with his real arm. Not gonna lie, it made my whole dang weekend.
In fact, it was almost as cute as this!

Is anyone else squeeing over Slimey the worm? Because squeeeeeee.
You ever feel like The Count is criminally underrated with kids these days? (Uh-oh, I just said "kids these days." I'M OFFICIALLY OLD.) John and I still go "AH. AH. AH!" after counting something out, so it made me happy to see The Count featured on this one:
(Sophie's Sweet Shop, California)
... even if he IS still second-billing to Elmo, lol.
Oh! Here's another Muppet hero of my generation:
(Cakes by Caralin, Toronto)
I'm such a sucker for cakes I want to hug.
More Muppet letters on two-year-old Henry's cake:
(Karolyn's Kakes, Pennsylvania)
The chocolate chip O is the best, ha. And of course I'm loving the bright orange layer: the head outlines are so crisp and perfect!
And finally, a parting wave from the Big Bird himself:
(Krazy Kool Cakes & Designs, Texas)
The feet! The feathers! That sweet sweet face!
Well, gang, I hope these Sesame Sweets made you smile. Who else is off to watch their favorite clips on Youtube now?
P.S. Because everyone needs an appropriate desk companion to channel their grouchy side:
Oscar the Grouch Funko Pop
He even has Slimey at the bottom! D'awwww.
