A good friend was having a 'mad hatters' themed birthday party. Flicking through some wedding cake books, I saw some wonderful topsy turvy cakes and thought... 'how hard can it be!' I asked my friend if I could make her cake and she was more than happy to let me make anything I liked. Knowing nothing about cakes or decorating (other than what I saw flipping through a couple wedding mags), I purchased some ingredients and the afternoon before the party I set about baking. Needless to say it was a long night!

Anyway, now I know a 'few' things about cakes and decorating, I am gobsmacked that it turned out as good as it did, and survived the car ride to her party.
I was exhausted, but it was a lot of fun to make! I also really enjoyed seeing the reaction of all our friends when they saw it.
