Dr. Seuss birthday cakes are a great idea for children who like Dr. Seuss. There are a variety of design patterns and methods of making the cake. It all depends on your preferences and creativity.
It’s difficult to overestimate the impact Dr. Seuss has had on literacy for young children. By kindergarten, kids are often able to recognize the Cat in the Hat symbol on Seuss’ books and recite lines from some of his most popular titles. If your kid like Dr. Seuss, it will be great to prepare a birthday cake based on Dr. Seuss for his or her birthday celebration.
There are a variety of ways and methods to create the cake and you can either choose to purchase it from a local bakery or you can make it yourselves. It may not be that difficult to make one if you do some prior planning and preparations. There are many different designs and patterns for you to choose from and in fact, there is no limit to how you are going to design the cake and it all depends on your creativity and preferences.
One of the popular designs is the cat in the hat cake. This Cat in The Hat Birthday Cake is a two tier round perfect chocolate cake with whipped buttercream filling, covered in a generous layer of buttercream and wrapped in a silky layer of fondant. The cake is finished in a custom designed Cat and The Hat Theme. The bottom layer is finished in a sky blue and hand cut white cloud effect with a kite, the classic “Thing 1″, a Dr. Seuss book with a Seuss-like birthday message and the red striped ball. The top layer is finished in the “hat” design and is topped off with a hand sculpted fondant goldfish jumping from his bowl.
You can also make a topsy turvy cake with red and white stripes on the bottom, and sky blue with swirls on the top. It can be a vanilla cake with raspberry preserves and raspberry buttercream filling. Furthermore, you can also use some of the words that Dr. Seuss said to decorate the cake. This will make the cake looks unique and interesting. Some of the most famous sayings of Dr. Seuss are, for example, “today you are you, which are truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you” and also “I like nonsense; it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living; it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities.” These sayings are great and utilizing them as decorations can actually teach the children to understand the meaning behind those words.
