Carving the cake is not a really big deal if you have a fedora to use as a guide. I found this online. Hope it helps.

Cover Cake in Fondant. Apply edible houndstooth sugar overlay. (Lucks Edible Image Designer Prints Houndstooth Black,) Tint small amount of fondant red and make 2 red feathers apply to side of cake. Make a houndstooth ribbon to apply to base of hat. Tint fondant black and add small detail to edge of hat to give it more definition.
