My Little Kitchen Helper Turned 5!

They say time flies when you're having fun?  Well, my little guy is just a hoot - keeps me laughing all the time.   These years really are flying by WAY too fast.  He excitedly celebrated his big 5th birthday last weekend.  And by his special request I made him a Cat In The Hat cake.  He absolutely loves Dr. Suess books and had a hard time deciding what character he wanted his cake to be this year. 
I have been decorating cakes since I was in high school (which seems like forever-ago).  Birthday cakes are my most favorite to do.  I have tried using fondant because it adds such creative possibilites - but I have not had much luck with it.  If any of you have any tips for me I'd love to hear them.   I have more cakes for nieces and nephews to do in the next few months!
