When I was learning how to read, I read a book that was about Pepe,his sister Pilar and their dog which I can’t remember the name. It was either Bantay or Tagpi. They usually play with their ball.

Unlike today kids have a lot to choose from and my son practiced reading on Dr.Seuss books like the Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham. That’s why I was thrilled when Samuel’s mom asked me to make a Cat in the Hat cake.

For this cake, I designed it to look like the Cat’s Hat. For the cake toppers, I included the Cat in the Hat,Thing 1 and 2,and the fish in the pot. I added a few details found in the story like the kites on the cake as well.

For the cupcakes, I referred to the story for the items to put on them.

Norie's Kitchen - Cat in the Hat Cupcakes

“With a cup and a cake on the top of my hat! I can hold up TWO books! I can hold up the fish! And a little toy ship! And some milk on a dish! And look! I can hop up and down on the ball! But that is not all! Oh, no. That is not all… “Look at me! Look at me! Look at me NOW! It is fun to have fun But you have to know how. I can hold up the cup And the milk and the cake! I can hold up these books! And the fish on a rake! I can hold the toy ship And a little toy man! And look! With my tail I can hold a red fan! I can fan with the fan As I hop on the ball! But that is not all. Oh, no. That is not all…”

I even played with my son if he could find the items mentioned in his book among the cupcake toppers.

I really had a blast making this cake.=D
