My husband always laughs at me and says I can make anything in the world except cakes, all because I made one for him once that said "congrulations". Plus, they would somehow always implode or fall over. I was driven to prove him wrong! So after much research, countless trips to the craft store, and 37 million curse words, here is my Mad Hatter cake. I used box cake mix (6 of them!) in vanilla and strawberry, but made the buttercream and fondant myself. There is a great tute for marshmallow fondant here:

It is super easy, super cheap and is way more pliable that store bought junk!

This cake weighed a whopping 16lbs! But was delicious!

That looks like it would taste great! I really love cakes baked at home. Store bought cakes always taste funny to me. Tongue

HAHA! It took me 2 days to make, and about 1 week to eat it. We ended up throwing half of it away, it was just to big for a family of 4. I did feel terrible cutting into it. I was so proud of it.

"congrulations!"  You conquered The Cake!  That is one fantastic piece, but I'm glad you had the courage to cut into and eat (half of) it.  It was a cake after all.
