Three tier (10/8/6). The figures are all gumpaste. I used a garlic press for the hair. Fish bowl on top is real. I can't seem to figure out the technique to cover the topsy turvy cakes and not get wrinkling at the tapered bases. It worked out for a Dr. Seuss cake though. Made for my friend's twins. She made red velvet cupcakes with blue cotton candy to go with it (one is pictured to the right).
