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.
