Thanks crystalina.
What if I just want to little fondant/gumpaste figures? Any ideas on how to decorate the cake itself? I was thinking of putting horton on top with the little pink puffball in his trunk and then some of the little whoville characters at the bottom (probably the dad and the son). But as for the cake itself I am drawing a blank.

try searching the gallery for jungle theme cakes, there are a ton of them here. that way you could mold the little characters and set them in the jungle. have you searched for horton in the galleries as well?

Someone left a comment on my "Javier" cake in my photos and said it would make a good Dr. Suess type of a cake. You could assemble it like that one and do smaller gumpaste figures of the characters all around the cake.

OK, here ya go..
Food Network did a Dr Seuss cake challenge and one of the competitors did Horton. You can view the entire episode at the link below, but you have to download and install their player to view it...

Great job on Horton! Would you mind PM'ing some tips on how you did him? I'm going to have to start on mine soon for my twins b-day.
