Mad Hatter’s Hat Cake

Mad Hatter’s Hat Cake

I was asked by a Mum of one of Burton’s friends if I would make a birthday cake for him. The theme for his party was Alfie in Wonderland, a take on Alice In Wonderland and his Mum wanted the cake to be based on the hat worn by the Mad Hatter. I suggested a rainbow layered sponge inside the ‘hat’ outer which I would cover with green fondant icing. Fondant icing is my nemisis as I am not very good at using it and therefore, my efforts to date have not been all together successful. However, I do enjoy a challenge so I decided to give it a go and make a Mad Hatter’s Hat Cake. After a long Friday night of much cursing, laughing hysterically (not quite tearful but almost at one point) and talking to myself often I got to grips with my ready to roll icing nemisis and covered the cake! I will be the first to admit that it is rough around the edges and could have been neater, but overall I think it looked pretty good and like the Mad Hatter’s Hat.
