This The Cat in the Hat Book Cake is the first cake book that I made. I made it for my daughter's class and they celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday. My cake is made of buttercream icing and spray painted it. The character in the front is made out of fondant and colored it with edible pen.
The letters are cutout made of fondant also. I printed the front of the book in 8x11.5 paper and cut the letters and characters. I used the cutout as my template. I had fun doing this cake with the help of my daughter. I actually made 2 books of the same design for 2 classes but unfortunately dropped one so there was one. It's was a humiliating experience when I brought the cake to my daughter's school because I got green coloring on my nose and just realized it when I got back home. It would be better if its a Grinch team. hahahaha. I just laughed at my self. You learn from experience. Dropping a cake is not funny at all especially if its a paid cake. That means you have to make another one. Its okay if its just a gift and nobody is expecting it.
It was quite an experience doing this cake. I learned another lesson. Be careful handling your cake.

This Dr. Seuss Birthday Cake Design was a cake my wife and I entered into my son's kindergarten cake contest to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss. She bakes the cake and makes the icing. I decorate. Anyhow, everybody seems to do the Cat in the Hat's hat or Green Eggs and Ham, so we wanted to stay far away from those icons and went with the Lorax instead.
It's just a chocolate cake decorated with 100% butter cream icing. I outlined the drawing into a blue base coat. I then piped the over the sketch with black butter cream icing. Then I filled in the colors with hundreds of piped stars of varying sizes. That's all there is to it. And to explain what exactly is happening in the picture, I wrote the following with all apologies to Dr. Seuss:
"I'm being quite useful. This thing is a Thneed. A Thneed's a Fine-Something-That-All-People-Need! It's a shirt. It's a sock. It's a glove. It's a hat. But it has other uses. Yes, far beyond that. It's sweet, low in fat and easy to bake. So here I have made you a Birthneed-Day cake!"
Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

My son wanted a Dr. Seuss theme for his 6th birthday. After searching for ideas, I came across the topsy-turvy homemade Dr. Seuss birthday cake. It was perfect since it was so imperfect! This was my first attempt at making one, and I was pleasantly surprised at how it came out!
The bottom tier are 8" and 9" cakes, and the top tier are 4, 5, and 6" cakes. They are stacked smallest to largest with buttercream frosting in between each layer. I put mine in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up so that carving them would be easier.
The cake is frosted with buttercream, and I used pre-made fondant for the stripes, circles, and balls (I wouldn't recommend eating it - it tastes horrible!) I made the hat out of card-stock.
This was a Dr.Seuss cake I made for a school cake decorating contest and I won first prize. To make the cat I prepared rice krispie treats following the directions on the box then I let it sit until I was able to mold him. After that I decorated him just like I would with a regular cake.
He is sitting behind a Dr.Seuss book. The book I made with two 9 inch square pans and I covered the cake with a homemade fondant that has marshmallows in it (I got the recipe online). Then I added the detailing on top of the fondant with butter cream icing.
