The Cat In The Hat is one of the Best Dr. Seuss books, although I would say there are many up there in the rankings that come in a close second or third. What better to have for your 1st birthday cake then a Cat in the Hat cake! For this cake I tried something totally new and loved it. I will be using this technique more in the future.
I used my Cricut Cake machine to cut out the words and the outlines of the shapes I wanted on the cakes and then I used edible food coloring markers and food coloring to paint on the details. So they were just white shapes and I added all the color, lines, and details. I really liked doing this. I felt I was a kid again sitting with my pad and pencil drawing my favoirte characters (I can't draw free hand, but copying a picture I am much better at).
Thing 1 and Thing 2

I found as I was looking at the pictures in the book (to help me paint on the details) it was fun to read the story over again (It had been a while since I have read it). I hope everyone has a Seussical day!
