Curious George cake submitted by:
For this birthday cake idea, I used the Wilton doll cake pan and carved the sides and top to look like "The Big Yellow Hat."
Roll out ready-made fondant icing that has been colored yellow. Cut a circle out of that using a large plate as a template. Place the carved "doll" cake in the center of the circle.
Ice with buttercream icing first to create a smooth finish. After the buttercream icing add more rolled out fondant to the cake.
To make moving the fondant easier, pick it up with a rolling pin. Trim the excess fondant with a knife. Make a small hat band with more fondant and place around the base of the cake. Wet the back to make the fondant stick to itself.
