Horton Cake

So how about that cake!  If you read this post (Miss T's Birthday Party), you saw that we had an amazing cake made for us following the Horton theme.

It was a two-tiered (6 and 9 inch round) vanilla cake.  As a surprise though, the cake was tinted so that each slice has a swirl of pink, orange, and teal!  The second tier had clovers and T's name in fondant.  Horton decorated the bottom layer while JoJo topped it all off.

As soon as it was placed in front of her, she started yelling, "Horton, Horton!".

I think this face says it all!

As you can see, all the kids loved it (as well as the adults!).

So where did we get our cake?  T's daycare teacher has a cousin whose hobby is making beautiful cakes.  Hobby?!  I'd say she has a future in cake design and I hope to see her on the Food Network in a cake challenge!  If you live in our area and are interested in her cakes, here is her website:  If you do check her out, let her know I sent ya!

Thank you, Melissa, for trusting me with Teaghan's cake. I enjoyed making the characters for her. I'm so glad she was able to recognize Horton right away! That means so much to me. (Cause you know you can't fool kids - they see them as it is :)

I am enjoying reading your blog. I hope to read more in the future. Take care... Kisses for Teaghan!
