I made this Fiesta Sombrero Cake for my son’s 7th birthday after he requested a fiesta, because he was taking Spanish language classes at school.

The bottom is a giant chocolate chip cookie. The dome part is a cake baked in a glass bowl. The wide red stripes are rolled fruit. I intended to buy just plain red rectangular shaped for this, but it had some sort of striping it it that worked well in the design. The other stripes are make from cake decorating gel.

The “ball” decorations are gumdrop candies. This cake was so easy to make, yet a big hit.
