Cat in the Dr. Seuss.

Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Seuss.
The popular children's book which was made into a movie.

Seen here is Cat's hat and the very scared Fish.

How to carve a fishbowl using a 6 inch cake.
Start with the rim of the bowl,
then work on the base,
then carve out a smooth round shape between rim and base. 

The hat, consisting of two parts.

Add two red strips at the bottom and in the middle of the white portion.
The red stripes are of uneven thickness through the length,
this gives an illusion of the hat being crooked.
Black lines will cover up the joints.

A wooden dowel inserted straight through the cake 
with a small board on top for the fishbowl.
The top of the hat should be leveled before applying fondant
if you want the fishbowl to be on stable ground.

A wobbly fishbowl...transport with care.

A cupcake to act as a candle holder.
