Cat in the Hat cake + cupcakes!

Hello everyone!  Time for another cake post!  i promise i have some home related things coming up i've just been so busy!  This cake is cat in the hat themed, it was a fun cake and pretty easy...first step is always the same: bake and cool

red velvet anyone?

after the cakes were cool i decided to cover them separately, because there would've 
been to many creases toward the bottom on such a tall cylindrical cake
(plus i covered the seam with stripes so nobody will ever see that)

i cut strips of fondant and stacked them up the cake, i used black 
sugar paper for the black lines to cover the seams

the cupcakes were thing 1 and thing 2 themed...the first thing i did was find their little 
logos and printed them out on regular paper and spent way too much time cutting 
them out.  when i was done i hot glue-gunned (new verb!) the pieces to the front
of my red cupcake liners (that already had the baked cupcakes inside of them).


here's how they came out after i iced them...pretty cute huh? 

well i really wanted that crazy thing 1 and thing 2 hair to come across more so i decided to add 
some blue cotton candy to them.  you should do this as the absolute last step due to the fact
that the cotton candy will want to melt.  i sprinkled a little powdered sugar around the
edges to dry it up a little then i pressed the cotton candy around the edges of the icing

loved this job!  my mom always read me dr. seuss growing up and we share a birthday so i feel connected to the crazy seuss world :)
