For this Dr Seuss cake I used a 10″ round (3 layers) and decorated it with butter cream. For the tree tops, I used tip 233 making a swirl pattern in pastel colors to look like the trees in The Lorax. I used foam pieces covered in paper to create the Dr. Seuss books which worked as a support to hold the hat. The hat and fish bowl were made with rice kripsie treats covered in marshmallow fondant. Then I used Wilton black coloring to add detail to the hat. The fish, Thing 1, Thing 2, and the green eggs and ham were all made with modeling chocolate.
I found this cake to be easier to make than I had expected. Everyone loved it and the best part…everything but the books were edible.
