I used a 4 cup Pyrex measuring bowl for the stem and a Pyrex mixing bowl for the top of the mushroom.  I just baked them in the bowls until they where cooked through.  The edges of the mushroom top were a little over cooked so I should have wrapped them with aluminum foil while it was backing. 

Once the cakes were cooled, I placed the stem on the base cake upside down and then I put in some cake dowels to support the mushroom top.  I placed the mushroom top cake upside down on a piece of cardboard for support and put it on top of the dowels.  I frosted the pieces and used a damp sponge on the mushroom top to smooth out the frosting by patting it.  I rolled out white gum paste and cut out circles.  I glued them to the cake with water. 

To make the green frosting look a little like grass, I frosted it and then touched the cake with a fork and pulled it up quickly.  I waited too long to do the sides and the frosting was a little too dry to use the fork trick.

My four and six year old daughters helped make the flowers out of gum paste.  I had bought a gum paste kit at Michaels that had all of the tools to make the flowers.

 It was actually a very easy cake to make. And a lot of fun!!
