My next cake was for a 1st Birthday party and was to be in the design of Curious George. The yellow and red colours go very well together and make for an eye-catching cake.
I changed the name on the side of the cake to suit the Birthday boy - Bobby. This was a nice way of personalising the cake whilst still keeping the theme of the cake.
The party hat was made from a strip of regal icing cut into a triangle and then painted with green and purple. I think it turned out well and is quite effective, not to mention much easier than cutting out strips of green and purple icing!
