The hat is 1x7", 2x6", 1x5" chocolate cakes, filled with chocolate ganache, stacked, carved to shape, covered in ganache then covered in fondant. I used a necklace to texture the fondant, then dusted with black and green powdered colour to give it a fabric look and hand-painted the gold detail. Tea cups were made using the Wilton mini-wonder pans. Gumpaste teacup handles, gumpaste ribbon and gumpaste hat pin decorations. A dowel kept the teacups upright and attached to the hat. Made for my daughter's 7th birthday - we took 19x7 year old girls to see Alice in Wonderland at the movies then back to our place for a Mad Hatter's Tea Party. I was exhausted by the end of the day.
