I have a dr seuss "oh, the places you'll go" cake for a graduation (for a friends kid). I'm going to do the stripes, the cone (or whatever it's called) on top, the quote, and the mom wants some figures representing where he's been & where he's going.

I have no idea how to do the stripes though! The good news is that they don't have to be - even shouldn't be! - at all straight. And thinking about it, not just the stripes around the sides but in circles on the top & up the cone..

So, any advice on the stripes, or any other part of the cake?? TIA!!!!!

Oh, & here's a link to see the cover of the book for reference: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0679805273/?tag=cakecentral-20

umm... good luck! lol.
i was thinking roll out the colours, and cut the stripes. lay them in a round shape, overlapping a bit, and roll together. only proplem is im not sure how well it would stick, and using edible glue or water might just make it sticky and mushy.
on you could just lie them straight on the cake!

I would use my large icing tip and then smooth out with roller and viva
