Kiss Me... I'm Irish

Ok.  Ok.  So I'm not Irish.  I just needed a catchy title to grab your attention.  Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day so I decorated this cake as a leprechaun hat.

The bottom layer was baked as a 6" round white cake.  The top layer is chocolate cake with buttercream icing blended within.  I molded the chocolate cake by making it dome shape at the top.

I coloured some fondant green and shaped it over the cake.

Out of gum paste I made the brim and the band of the hat which (ahem) I forgot to take a picture of and a three leaf clover.  And voila!  A cake for St. Patrick's Day!


  1. Hey there,
    I'm tagging you to participate in the ask me anything game :) I hope you will "play along" :)

  2. What a cute idea, I bet it was a hit. I am going to try a tinker bell cake for my grand daughter's 4th birthday - she is gaga for tinker bell. And you did such a pretty job.
