My preschool class was having a graduation party. We decided Dr.Seuss was the theme. I looked for a long time for a Dr.Seuss Cake Idea and while I found many of the other cakes cute I wanted something a little different. I love Cat in the Hat and the fish. I wanted to incorporate Thing 1 and Thing 2.
So I decided to put it all together. This is the first cake I had ever made that was 3D. I started with a few 9×9 cakes and layered them. Then I covered the box with homemade fondant. For the fish bowl I used a simple metal bowl that I made two of and slapped together. I also covered it in fondant. The fish is completely made of fondant and stuck on top. I hand painted everything and washed the box with a red again to made it stand out. The box cake has straws in it under the teapot to help absorb the weight. The handle and spout of the teapot are rice krispie treats covered in fondant and stuck into the cake with toothpicks and longer wood picks.
It was a blast and I loved learning how to make it and the kids loved it at the party.
