My mom is in the Red Hat Society. Her birthday was on Easter day this year so I decided to make her a Red Hat Easter Bonnet Cake. It is a red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. I cut the top layer's edges so it was more rounded. I covered it with fondant that I colored red. I left the excess fondant on the cake and placed crumpled aluminum foil under random pieces so it would look like a wavy brim. I let it set like that and when I removed the aluminum foil it stayed. I made the flowers out of fondant too and let them dry before attaching them to the cake with icing. The ribbon is just a wired satin ribbon and it is pinned in place with straight pins. I was the one to cut the cake so I made sure to remove these first.

So, sweet!  I don't know a "Red Hat Lady"  that wouldn't love this cake.  Great job!
